Photosynthetic protein complexes employ molecular components positioned with a precision beyond the limits of contemporary fabrication technologies [1] and achieve internal quantum efficiencies approaching 100%. We are optically and electrically characterizing reaction center complexes from R. sphaeroides to evaluate their usefulness in solid-state devices.(More)
The genetic basis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) among Finnish PAH patients is poorly understood. We adopted a novel-targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) approach called Oligonucleotide-Selective Sequencing (OS-Seq) and developed a custom data analysis and interpretation pipeline to identify pathogenic base substitutions, insertions, and(More)
Over two billion years of evolutionary adaptation have optimized the functionality of biological photosynthetic complexes. Plants and photosynthetic bacteria, for example, contain protein molecular complexes that harvest photons with nearly optimum quantum yield and an expected power conversion efficiency exceeding 20%. The molecular circuitry within(More)
