Cyanobacteria are one of the oldest and most abundant life forms on Earth, and are only going to become more abundant with global warming. One of the many intriguing properties they exhibit is that they are able to generate electricity under sunlight irradiation, much like a solar cell. 

Why and how do cyanobacteria (and other photosynthetic micro-organisms) do this?
How do we best harness this energy to do useful chemistry?
These are the questions that lie at the heart of our research.
