Molecular mechanisms of photoprotection in plants.

Project description

Understanding the mechanisms of photoprotection to improve agricultural production

Photoprotection is a set of processes that act throughout photosynthesis and aim at minimising light absorption, detoxifying reactive oxygen species generated by excess light, and dissipating excess absorbed light. The EU-funded EVERPHOT project will shed light on the molecular mechanisms of photoprotection that protect against light stress, and more specifically on the mechanisms addressed to prolonged light stress. By combining methods of genetics, biochemistry, biophysics and physiological approaches, the project will identify new targets for manipulation, crucial to increasing yields of energy and food crops.
