Welcome to the Sheffield Photosynthesis Research group website. We utilise a range of molecular genetic, biochemical and biophysical approaches to study photosynthesis in plants, algae and bacteria.
We are investigating photosynthetic electron transfer, light harvesting, membrane organisation and assembly, photosynthetic regulation and bionanotechnology, and chlorophyll biosynthesis
To feed a global population of 9-10 billion people by 2050 we need to increase food production by 150%. Our research to improve the efficiency of photosynthesis can help us meet this challenge.Find out more
