Genomic insights into photosynthesis in eukaryotic phytoplankton

Genomic insights into photosynthesis in eukaryotic phytoplanktonResearchers at the Cell & Plant Physiology laboratory decided to explore the role of state transitions on photosynthesis in Chlamydomonas mutants with respiratory defects. The analysis of these mutants has allowed them to show the essential role of the role of state transitions on photosynthesis of the green alga Chlamydomonas.
