Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS Project 3127
See the link below for public details on this project.

Bacteria in marine environments have been found to be able to partially support growth by using light to generate energy in a non-photosynthetic process. This is possible due to a special protein called proteorhodopsin. It is hypothesised that formation of proteorhodopsin has evolved to cope ... View entire text
