Quantum transport in the FMO photosynthetic light-harvesting complex
This light is harvested by an antenna-complex, ..
The course explores the physiological processes pertinent to plants, it enhance the knowledge of the students in biological molecules, photosynthesis, respiration, transport, growth, flowering plant, growth substances and the physiological aspects of crop yield. The practical aspect of the course focuses on carrying out simple tests to identify some of the common biochemicals (qualitative analysis) in plants and to measure their amounts (quantitative analysis), to practically study and be able to explain the different physiological activities necessary for growth and development of plants. Determine the underlining physiological activities that explain the characteristics of plant materials observed when still attached onto the parent plant, after harvesting and during storage. The understanding of the rationale behind the practical procedures will enhance the student’s ability to design their own procedures if necessary as they advance to higher levels
A Role for a Light-Harvesting Antenna Complex of ..
Course deals with a variety of physiological processes occurring in plants. For most students this course will serve as background for other more advanced plant science courses. Thus, the following specific objectives are intended To understand plant structures in the context of physiological function plants, To understand plant water relations, i.e. how plants acquire, utilize, and regulate the flow ofwater between plant and environment, To understand the mineral nutrients plants require, and how they are obtained, metabolized,and transported, To understand the physiological details of photosynthesis and respiration, and how they areorganized and regulated in plants, To understand plant growth and development, and its regulation by hormones and theenvironment.
