Chloroplast biogenesis and photosynthesis

We investigate how two genomes, in the nuclear and in the chloroplast compartments, coordinate their activities to construct and maintain the photosynthetic apparatus. In another aspect of our research, we try to better understand how the photosynthetic machinery responds to changes in environmental conditions, and in particular to variations in the quality and intensity of light. The unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and the flowering land plant Arabidopsis thaliana are our experimental models.
