Project Description

Algae live in dynamic environment and have the capacity to regulate photosynthesis and photoregulation accordingly. Red algae are of particular interest because in addition to photosystems I and II they contain phycobilisomes. This project will use transcriptome and metabolome approaches to undertand photosynthetic regulation in the red microalgal species Porphyridium cruentum.
