Power Plants: Kramer lab featured in MSU President's 2016 Report
The video features PhotosynQ, a sophisticated scientific platform that measures plant health and productivity parameters in real time and in dynamic environmental conditions, outside of the lab. The technology is easy to use and inexpensive, making it possible for researchers, farmers, and plant experts around the world to connect and maximize big data for big solutions.
You can access the rest of the MSU President's 2016 Report, which includes videos and 360-degree, interactive environments that provide a closer look at the work the selected participants - including Mona Hanna-Attisha and Tom Izzo - are doing.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded the Michigan State University-DOE Plant Research Laboratory a three-year (2020-2023), $11.25 million DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences competitive renewal grant to continue its innovative photosynthesis research.
Scientists have established a new method to quantify how much cyanobacteria assimilate carbon in the process of photosynthesis. The method assesses carbon assimilation over a stretch of time. It also better factors in a wider range of environmental variables, such as changing carbon dioxide (CO2) levels or varying light intensities.
Benning is featured on the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science's 'First-Person Science' series, where scientists describe how they made significant discoveries over years of research.
