Beskrivning av projektet
Humankind has long been dependent on photosynthesis as a source of food, feed, and energy. However, photosynthetic productivity faces increasing challenges from a rapidly changing climate and growing world population. In order to meet these challenges, a deep understanding of photosynthetic regulation is required. Flavodiiron proteins are important players in the context of the photosynthetic machinery and regulation. This project aims to reveal the complex networks that flavodiiron proteins are involved in and to understand how these proteins function as a safety valve for cell viability during environmental fluctuations. The results obtained in this project will provide valuable information for the improved efficiency of photosynthesis toward a bio-based economy.
