Scientists discover new type of photosynthesis in breakthrough study

A new study out of Imperial College London describes the discovery of a new type of photosynthesis, one the institute says “changes our understanding of the basic mechanism” involved. Even better, researchers indicate this discovery could pave the way for engineered crops that are more efficient than existing options. According to the study, researchers found a new type of photosynthesis … Continue reading
