Responsible for the green color of plants, the essential mechanisms for the emergence of photosynthesis have just been explored at the level of plant cells. In collaboration with scientists from the Universities of Neuchâtel (UniNE), Geneva (UNIGE), as well as from ETH Zurich, we reveal their discoveries in the journal eLife. Combining biochemistry, electron microscopy, and 3D computer reconstruction, the astounding phenomenon can now be visualized in moving images over time.
