Project: The influence of genome size on the efficiency of photosynthesis in angiosperm
I am a Science without Borders funded PhD student working to determine if genome size in angiosperms influences the efficiency of photosynthesis. To do that I use approaches in genetics, anatomy, and plant physiology, especially to determine patterns of light energy utilization across the photosynthetic membrane and of gas exchange.
