University of Illinois researchers established the university's first rice paddy to test rice performance in Illinois and at Kyoto University in Japan. The two plots, which were planted on the same date, should reveal clues about what factors help the plants more efficiently convert the sun's energy into food, known as photosynthetic pe ...

All over the world researchers are investigating solar cells which imitate plant photosynthesis, using sunlight and water to create synthetic fuels such as hydrogen. Empa researchers have developed such a photoelectrochemical cell, recreating a moth's eye to drastically increase its light collecting efficiency. The cell is made of cheap raw materials—iron and tu ...

'Interni Legacy' Press Preview - 2012 Milan Design Week
Phytoplankton—tiny, photosynthetic organisms—are essential to life on Earth, supplying us with roughly half the oxygen we breathe. Like all other life forms, phytoplankton require the element phosphorus to carry out critical cellular activity, but in some parts of the world's ocean, P is in limited supply. How ...

'Interni Legacy' Press Preview - 2012 Milan Design Week
A team of researchers from Virginia Tech and the University of California, Berkeley, found that a protein that activates photosynthesis in plants is older than oxygen. They think it likely developed from ancient microbes 2.5 billion years ago. The research team came to this conclusion by looking at the microbes known as Achaea that form methane. They live in areas that are absent of oxygen. They think that since methanogens developed before oxygen appe ...
