Photobiology of microalgae

Microalgae are prominent aquatic organisms responsible for about half of the photosynthetic activity on Earth. We investigate the functional diversity, ecology and evolution of microalgae by studying light-driven processes (photosynthesis, photoperception, circadian rhythms) and plastid biology in molecular model systems (primarily the marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum) and ecological relevant phytoplanktonic species.
