Can scientists hack photosynthesis to feed the world as population soars?
In an effort to increase diversity in the neurosciences, Washington University in St. Louis has received a federal grant to participate in a national pipeline program with that mission.
Scientists have long understood how photosynthesis works – but only up to a point. The very fine details are hard to discern.
