X-ray vision of photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is one of the most important processes in nature. The complex method by which all green plants harvest sunlight and thereby produce the oxygen in our air is still not fully understood. Researchers have used DESY’s X-ray light source PETRA III to investigate a photosynthesis subsystem in a near-natural state. The results are published in the scientific journal Structure. The method applied might also be of interest for the structural analysis of other biomolecules. —> Read More Here
