Cyanobacteria are a highly intriguing and versatile group of bacteria of enormous biological and societal importance. As inventors of oxygenic photosynthesis and ancestors of chloroplasts they have occupied a key position in the evolution of the atmosphere and transformed biology and geochemistry on earth. Without doubt, research on cyanobacteria is crucial for the understanding of Earth’s early environmental history. The conference on “Bioenergetics of cyanobacteria” will highlight evolutionary aspects as the retrospective can give impulses for the present research on oxygenic phototrophs, in particular in times of a rapidly changing environment.
