How Do Single Cell Green Alga Swim Towards the Light?
Single-celled organisms such as the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii live in waters like the Elbe. To carry out photosynthesis effectively, the cell swims towards the light. To do this, it needs two things: a light sensor and swimming arms. Of course, these need to be coupled together for navigation. We will show you how cells can be controlled by light and how the swimming arms work at the molecular level.
