Abstract

We provide here a news report on the 2015 Gordon Research Conference "Dynamics and regulation of photosynthesis: from the origin of biocatalysis to innovative solar conversion.'' It was held at Bentley University, Waltham, MA, USA, June 28-July 3, 2015, and offered a mix of traditional and emerging areas that highlighted new directions and methods of analyses. A major innovation was short (1 min) poster highlights that added an exciting dynamic to the interactions. Following the end of the formal sessions, three young scientists (Andrian Gutu, of Harvard University, USA; Alizée Malnoë, of University of California, Berkeley, USA; and Yuval Mazor of Tel Aviv University, Israel) were recognized for their research; they also each received a recent volume of "Advances in photosynthesis and respiration including bioenergy and related processes" from Govindjee. We also provide at the end a brief report on the Gordon Research Seminar that preceded the conference.
