The attached article was just published and reviews recent attempts at making photosynthesis more efficient by reducing photorespiration. One example involves expressing a couple of bacterial genes in the chloroplast, by building a novel biochemical pathway that never evolved, that appears to result in more efficient photosynthesis. If you are looking for a topic for the second half, this should be interesting.

Enjoy the rest of your break.
