 TITLE: 

Nanobionics to empower photosynthesis and productivity of microalgae
Acronym: NANOBIO

 
  FINANCING SCHEME: 

Bilateral Agreements for Scientific and Technological Cooperation between CNR and RFBR (Russia)

 
 
 SHORT DESCRIPTION AND USEFUL INFO:  

Integration of CNTs in plant biotechnology brought to light vast number of new findings, revealing the capacity of plant nanobiotechnology to support the development of a competitive bioeconomy. Based on these recent advances, the project explores the potential of CNT-based applications to enhance photosynthetic performance of microalgae and their fitness under conditions of large-scale cultivation. We focused on the development of experimental approaches to enable the interaction of photosynthetic machinery and CNTs, and on the unravelling the mechanism of such interaction.
