Cyanobacteria to bacteria

Hello, I'm new here, may I ask... what is the very difference between cyanobacteria to bacteria? in talks of cellular structure? :D

Cyanobacteria have multiply-folded membranes studded with photosystems where the light reactions of photosynthesis occur. The presence of these membranes is the most obvious ulstrastructural difference shared by all cyanobacteria and absent in eubacteria.

Cyanobacteria belong to bacteria (as the name suggests), so it's like asking what's the difference between human to animals.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

...and I was sloppy. I should have written "absent in OTHER eubacteria."
