Researchers say artificial photosynthesis promises clean, sustainable source of energy

July 15, 2021

Humans can do lots of things that plants can't do. We can walk around, we can talk, we can hear and see and touch. But plants have one major advantage over humans, they can make energy directly from the sun. A study published in the journal Chem Catalysis: Cell Press shows that the process of turning sunlight directly into usable energy called photosynthesis may soon be a feat humans are able to mimic to harness the sun's energy for clean, storable, efficient fuel.

Pro Tip: Cold denaturation reveals novel plant-based protein functionality

July 14, 2021

Denaturation has long been seen as an unavoidable side effect of isolating protein before it gets packaged and shipped off to make into final products. This unfolding is commonly thought of as an all or none process, where the protein unfolds rapidly into a random configuration as the result of temperature, shear, pressure or chemical interruption to its structure.
