Project title: Regulation of the photosynthetic membrane landscape in cyanobacteria
Summary: A better understanding of the composition, structure and function of the membrane microdomains in the cyanobacteria Synechococcus 7942 could pave the way to smarter solutions for re-engineering cyanobacteria for biotechnological purposes. In this regard, the project will be focused on characterizing the composition of the specific membrane zones by atomic-force microscopy, negative-staining electron microscopy, freeze-fracture electron microscopy and three-dimensional characterisation by cryo-electron tomography.
