Photosynthetic and atmospheric evolution

The meeting will combine biochemistry and geological studies, addressing the evolutionary history of CO2 fixation from the Archaean, via cyanobacteria to eukaryotic plankton and plants.

2007 marks the 70th anniversary of the demonstration that chloroplasts catalyse the photolysis of water into O2 and the 60th anniversary of the discovery of Rubisco. The photosynthetic apparatus and Rubisco have fed the biosphere, remade the atmosphere, and directed the global greenhouse.
