Summary

 

Summary

The Nixon group is studying various aspects of solar energy conversion by chloroplasts and cyanobacteria. Projects include:

1. The structure and function of the Photosystem II complex involved in water-splitting

2. The assembly and repair of PSII and the biogenesis of the thylakoid membrane

3. Cyanobacterial synthetic biology

4. Over-expression of high-value products in higher plant chloroplasts
