An international consortium coordinated by researchers from the Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory, the National Institute for Basic Biology in Japan and Humboldt University in Germany, has deciphered the molecular links that exist in microalgae between the perception of light, its use for photosynthesis and protection against light stress. These results, which open new perspectives in the study of the light trafficking in photosynthetic organisms, are published in the journal Nature.
