Heterocyst lineage description system
Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 is a model
organism to study differentiation of heterocysts, which are specialized
in nitrogen fixation.
However, no one has ever described complete lineage of cells that
We succeeded in recording the fate of individual cells in a single
filament (also called trichome).
HLDS is used to construct lineage tree of heterocysts.
