Niedzwiedzki publishes findings on role of carotenoids in photosynthetic organisms

Research from the McKelvey School of Engineering has shed light on a unique aspect of the role and limitations of carotenoids in regulating light harvesting efficiency in photosynthetic organisms.

The study, led by Dariusz Niedzwiedzki, a researcher at the McKelvey School of Engineering, and Andrew Hitchcock, at the University of Sheffield, looked at the relationship between structural motifs of carotenoids and their roles in light-harvesting complexes.

The findings were published online March 5 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Read more on the engineering website.
