Green and Purple: Bioprocesses that use light

23/11/2019 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST

Free

This presentation has since taken place, you can view the film recording here

Abstract: Light-driven biological processes have the reputation of being very complicated, but they achieve simple goals. Fundamentally, light drives the movement of hydrogen ions and electrons to accomplish important tasks including vision, and the storage of energy in carbohydrates or other molecules.  These processes are mediated by beautiful  molecular structures which rival Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity. We will take a look at some of these structures, and see the basics of how they work.
