PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Studies on the biochemical regulation of C3 and C4 photosynthesis

Terrestrial photosynthesis forms an important part of the global carbon balance as sinks for atmospheric CO2. In agricultural systems, photosynthesis is a vital component of crop yield. There is, therefore, a great need to be able to understand and quantify these processes under changing environmental conditions.

This project is open to Honours, Bachelor, Masters and PhD students
