  • Photosynthesis adapts to environmental conditions over time.¹

  • Varying environmental conditions lead to stress accumulation on the plant.²

  • A genetic library has been assembled for forward genetic screening of Arabidopsis thaliana.³

  • Arabidopsis Thaliana is a model plant used as a model organism in growth experiments.

  • This research project aims to identify and analyze candidate genes that impact the efficiency of photosynthesis.

  • These genes can be transplanted into commercial crops to increase efficiency of photosynthesis and crop yields.
