Spinach Could Lead To Alternative Energy Stronger Than Popeye
2014-07-28 03:13:17

Elizabeth Gardner, Purdue University Spinach gave Popeye super strength, but it also holds the promise of a different power for a group of scientists: the ability to convert sunlight into a clean, efficient alternative fuel. Purdue University physicists are part of an international group using spinach to study the proteins involved in photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert the sun’s energy into carbohydrates used to power cellular processes. “The proteins we study...
