Abstract

In this issue of Cell, Singharoy et al. present a rate kinetic model for the chromatophore of photosynthetic purple bacteria generated from molecular dynamics simulations. It shows that the chromatophore's architecture is optimized for producing bioenergy under low light typical of the natural bacterial habitat while minimizing photodamage under stress conditions.
