One of the most fascinating things about plants is their ability to perform photosynthesis: Converting light energy into chemical energy in the form of carbohydrates. But what if we could make plants that were more efficient at this process? They could possibly grow bigger and faster on less land, which would be helpful for sustainability.

Join BTI’s David Stern in this Breaking Ground as we discuss his research into the molecular biology of photosynthesis, and how scientists are working to optimize crops.
