Conference - St Louis, Missouri, United States
A primary goal in the formulation and presentation of the scientific program for the 16th International Congress on Photosynthesis is to illuminate the expansive intellectual and societal scope across which the multidimensional photosynthesis research community makes a vital contribution. At its core photosynthesis research has for decades been in the vanguard of advancing basic mechanistic knowledge about the photophysics of light absorption and energy transfer in antenna systems, primary photochemistry in reaction centers, electron and proton transport complexes, structure-function relationships of catalytic proteins, to name only a few examples. The importance of this arena of photosynthesis research continues undiminished. The mechanistic understanding of the regulation of leaf level photosynthesis was the key event launching an understanding of the interaction of chloroplast reactions with larger-scale processes at the plant, community and ecosystem level. This contribution of photosynthesis research has been the foundation science from which our research community now leads research investigating some of the most important issues of our time.
