Seminar_LIGHT AND LIFE : AN OUTLINE OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS RESEARCH_ JEROME PIERREL_June 11, 201511/06 : 13h15 - 14h15
As part of the Cluster LAPHIA seminars ( IdEx Bordeaux) , Jérôme Pierrel ( University of Bordeaux , SPH ) will present his research on "Light and life : an outline of photosynthesis research".
The seminar LAPHIA will be held Thursday, June 11, 2015 from 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm in the amphitheater of the Institute of Optics of Aquitaine ( tram B - Arts et Métiers) .

This seminar will give an outline of the history of photosynthesis research. From the XVIIIth century, when the function of light and carbon dioxide became clear, to the XXth century, when several teams elucidated the chemical pathway of carbon fixation as well as the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction centre, research became increasingly technically demanding. Telling the story of photosynthesis research brings together different topics: chemistry, physics, and even botany. Thus, the very nature of photosynthesis research raises questions about interdisciplinary research.
