Medicine & TechnologyResearchers from Dartmouth College discovered how iron deficient plants protect themselves from damaging light that involves a genetic process that involves optimizing photosynthesis.
When did photosynthesis start? The new gene-analyzing technique provided evidence that it might have begun even before the Great Oxidation Event, suggesting a new timeline of Earth's evolutionary history.
While we enjoy a day that is approximately 24 hours long, a new study suggests that it might not have always been the case, with the changes in the length of a day providing a nudge toward the development of complex life.
In a recently published study, researchers recently showed the arrival of the first land plants roughly 400 million years ago may have changed the way this planet is naturally regulating its own climate.
A bright potential treatment for stroke combines the mechanisms of photosynthesis and nanoparticles in a new "nano-photosynthetic" system, that is said to reduce dying neurons, improve motor function, and help new blood vessels grow.
