Determining Evolutionary and Environmental Influence on Photosynthetic Pigment Composition in Eukaryotic Photosynthetic Organisms

Written by Aida Martinez Introduction All organisms require a metabolic process that allows them to convert something they intake into energy. To convert light into energy, all organisms contain tetrapyrroles (involved in energy transfer, catalysis and transduction) (Reinbothe 1995). Of the greatest sources of energy is photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a metabolic process (present in photosynthetic organisms) that intakes light, carbon dioxide, minerals, and water to produce chemical energy such as sugars, ATP and oxygen. Sugars and ATP are stored in […]
