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 delves into how algae manage cell division processes when they suffer from starvation. The finding has implications for biofuel technologies, given that algae have the potential to become a sustainable source of high value oils.
Kellie Walters and Bryan Ferlez were both recognized as scientists who exemplify the research excellence, ideas, dedication, and vision of former PRL director, Anton Lang.
MSU Foundation Professor, Beronda Montgomery, will bring her talents to the Office of Research & Innovation as interim assistant vice president. She joined the team in a half-time capacity effective Sept. 15, 2020.
