Structure and dynamics of the thylakoid membrane
Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor James Barber FRS and Professor Peter Horton FRS
We have a remarkable understanding of the various thylakoid membrane protein complexes which constitute the photosynthetic electron transfer chain of plants. We now need to integrate this knowledge to describe the structure and function of the complete thylakoid membrane and understanding how it is regulated to optimise photosynthetic efficiency in response to changing environments.

Session 1: Structure, mechanisms and organisation of protein complexes in thylakoids
