 Explore how photosynthesis works by helping the process along in this game.

The effect of varying the intensity or wavelength of the light may be studied, as can the effect of temperature or cell density. Different species of algae or cyanobacteria may also be tested. The kit is therefore ideal for individual practical investigations.

Ideal for investigations of factors affecting photosynthesis at A Level, GCSE or equivalent.

Although Schulten published his first paper ever on photosynthesis in 1978 while at the Max Planck Institute, his next foray into the field would come only after a ten-year hiatus. But the serendipitous opportunity that presented itself a decade later would prove a treasure trove for a computational biophysicist like Schulten. The reason for the hiatus was because Schulten realized that for his theoretical purposes, the data was just not there–the structure of the reaction center was still unknown. “One could have done more,” says Schulten, “but it would have always been questioned.”
