Photosynthesis and Environment (P&E)
We are using different techniques in algae and plants, specifically synthetic biology and forward genetics approaches to undertand the future of genetic improvement of photosynthesis.
We have found new conserved actors in the regulation of photosynthesis and we are using a structure-function approach to characterise these interactions that have repercussions on photosynthetic yields. We are implicated in European consortiums and work with CEA tech to develop these ideas.
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.
