Cyanobacterial studies examine cellular structure during nitrogen starvation

Cyanobacterial studies examine cellular structure during nitrogen starvation

Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis and ORNL are using neutrons to study what happens when cyanobacteria cell samples are starved for nitrogen. They are especially interested in how this process affects phycobilisomes, large antenna protein complexes in the cells that harvest light for photosynthesis.
