Photosynthesis and Environment (P&E)
We use a translational approach by comparing different photosynthetic model organisms in their response to the environment.
A collection of state of the art material is used for the quantification of photosynthetic electron flows and gas exchange. Our interests lie in deepening our knowledge on the mecanisms of regulation linked to the coupling between electron transport and the Calvin Cycle. These include NPQ, alternative electron transfer and metabolic reactions.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
