Recently, we started a phenomics project in PRL to identify and characterize mutants, ecological variants etc. with differing photosythetic phenotypes. The project relies on application of existing technologies to develop plant growth chambers that more closely duplicate fluctuations that occur in nature.

Our research aims to understand how photosynthesis powers and shapes life, and how it might be altered to increase productivity in a changing environment. We have established an integrated program that builds on recent technological and scientific advances to allow high-resolution and high-throughput characterization of photosynthetic processes in vivo. The program involes strong, interdisciplinary collaborations, combining biophysics, biochemistry, genetics, genomics, metabolomics, systems biology to address key questions in the control photosynthetic energy storage. Ultimately, we aim to build this effort into a large-scale phenomics center to address major issues in energy and food productivity.
