Research

Susanne von Caemmerer is distinguished for many important contributions to the study of photosynthesis. Her research focuses on diffusion and fixation of CO2 by leaves and she developed simple mathematical models for quantitative descriptions of CO2 fixation. These are now used world wide for the calculation of global CO2 fixation. In recent years she had used antisense RNA technology to generate transgenic plants with reduced amounts of different photosynthetic enzymes to study the regulation of C3 and C4 photosynthesis.
