What is Anoxygenic Photosynthesis

By | October 13, 2021

Photosynthesis is a process, where organisms use inorganic molecules such as carbon di oxide and convert it into carbohydrates (food) using sunlight. In this manner organisms capable of performing photosynthesis can generate energy that helps their growth. Different organisms perform Photosynthesis : Green sulfur bacteria, Acidobacteria, Cyanobacteria, Algae , Plants etc. Depending on the products… Read More »

Light Reaction – Photosynthesis in Plants (PART II)

By | September 19, 2021

Photosynthesis can be divided into two parts : Light dependent reactions or Light Reactions and Dark Reactions or Calvin Cycle. Light reactions forms the “Photo” part of Photosynthesis and Dark reactions / Calvin Cycle is a separate process which accounts for “synthesis” aspect in Photosynthesis, where sugars are produced. Light reaction involves the following events… Read More »

Photosynthesis in plants – Introduction Part I

By | September 17, 2021

Photosynthesis is a process where green plants and some other organisms (algae and some bacteria – such as Proteobacteria , Chloroflexi, Chlorobi and cyanobacteria ) uses trapped sunlight to convert carbon di oxide and water to produce chemical energy in the form of carbohydrates (most commonly glucose) and oxygen. In other words, photosynthesis is a process… Read More »
