Quotes

"I have the first photosynthetic material that is working and breathing as a leaf does" said Julian Melchiorri
...According to news reporting originating in Zanjan, Iran , by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Photosynthesis is a sustainable process for the conversion of light energy into chemical energy. Thylakoids in energy-transducing photosynthetic membranes are unique in biological membranes because of their distinguished structure and composition."
...According to news reporting originating from Durham, New Hampshire , by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Partially mycoheterotrophic (mixotrophic) plants gain carbon from both photosynthesis and their mycorrhizal fungi. This is considered an ancestral state in the evolution of full mycoheterotrophy, but little is known about this nutrition, and especially about the physiological balance between photosynthesis and fungal C gain."
