A new paper reveals how nature has come up with solutions for photosynthetic organisms to safely harvest sunlight. The paper is included as a chapter in a new book, Photosynthesis in Algae: Biochemical and Physiological Mechanisms, published by Springer.By Igor Houwat, Atsuko Kanazawa; Banner image by Kramer lab
The latest advances in cryo-electron tomography were used to image photosynthetic protein complexes embedded within native thylakoid membranes inside the cell.
Atsuko Kanazawa reflects on collaborative projects in West Africa that contribute to local food security, like identifying drought-resistant beans or supporting women-run experimental farms.By By Atsuko Kanazawa, Igor Houwat, Cynthia Donovan; Banner Image by Atsuko Kanazawa
When engineers want to speed up a system, they look for the slowest steps and make them faster. In plants, this approach potentially does more harm than good, says the Kramer lab.By Igor Houwat, Atsuko Kanazawa, David Kramer
“Feed the Future," funded by USAID, engages universities, institutions, and private organizations in the US, Africa, and Central/South America to improve legume management on local farms.
The technology is featured alongside various new tools that are transforming marine science, as researchers rush to understand how coral reefs are affected by overfishing, pollution, global warming and ocean acidification.
Atsuko blogs on the debut of a PRL-built device that measures coral reef health. "If we continue the current practice of land-use, with no further pollution control, over-fishing & etc., coral reefs would disappear by 2070."

A new study from Michigan State University is shedding light on how plants could potentially become more efficient at photosynthesis. The long-term implications of this research range from improved agricultural productivity to predicting the effects of climate change.
Josh Vermaas, the newest addition to the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory faculty body, has begun his assistant professorship this month. Josh is a computational biophysicist whose research interests include developing computational models to better understand membrane processes and plant materials.
With the support of NASA, the lab of Federica Brandizzi has been studying how plants survive in space conditions. A new study starts revealing how a plant system – which helps plants manage various types of Earthly stresses, such as extreme heat – might function in space.
