Hot-spring bacteria reveal ability to use far-red light for photosynthesis
University Park PA (SPX) Aug 27, 2014
Bacteria that grow in environments enriched in far-red light use a previously unknown process for harvesting energy. This discovery lays the foundation for further research aimed at improving plant growth and harvesting energy from the Sun, and understanding dense blooms like those now occurring on Lake Erie and other lakes worldwide. A paper describing the discovery will be published in the Science Express edition of the journal Science. "We have shown that some cyanobacteria, also called b ... read more
