Plant Science Seminar: New insights in photosynthetic energy conversion in higher plants

Wednesday 13 March 2019
Gorlaeus Building
Einsteinweg 55
2333 CC Leiden
LMUY 04.28


In plants, the energy-converting machinery is harbored in a specialized thylakoid membrane system inside the chloroplasts. Structural attributes of the thylakoid membrane system provides a special environment for photosynthetic electron transport and light-harvesting.

The talk provides an update about our recent findings on structure-function relationships in plant thylakoid membranes ranging from the molecular to the whole membrane level. Special emphasis will be given to structural thylakoid dynamics that is key for understanding adaption processes of photosynthetic energy conversion to environmental changes.
