My group and I are doing a project, that if chosen, will be preformed by astronauts on the International Space Station in micro gravity. We are doing our project on gloeocapsa. We need to know how to kill but, preserve it and we were wondering if you have any tips for us. We are keeping it in a small tube for about three month and can you please help us. And we were wondering if there is a dormant form of gloeocaspa.

sorry no-one seems to know the answer to your question. I have looked into your question regarding dormant forms and am unable to find any details on this.
