PHOBIO – Regulation of photosynthesis and renewable biomass production

Research group
Active research
Project owner
Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences

Short description

The ongoing research in our group is dedicated to understand how photosynthesis is regulated by ion fluxes in plants and algae. In the recent years we have initiated additional projects to use our photosynthesis expertise for production of renewable biomass using microalgae.
