Boosting agricultural productivity by improving natural photorespiration in plants using synthetic biology
The FutureAgriculture projects aims at designing a synthetic enzyme to improve natural photorespiration in plants. This is pursued by combining disparate lines of investigation such as computational biology, microbiology and plant physiology. If successful, the project may significantly improve agricultural productivity and help feed billions of people worldwide.
Studied and re-created the symbiotic relationships between robots and plants to produce natural self-sustaining architectural elements
Creating robots that imitate climbing plants in order to address specific issues in energy and manufacturing sectors
