AccessionGenProp0609
Namephototroph
TypePHENOTYPIC
DescriptionOrganisms which are capable of obtaining energy from light. Typically, in plants and cyanobacteria, this is tightly coupled with the process of carbon fixation (autotrophy) and is thus termed photosynthesis. In some microbes, however, light is harvested only for the purpose of energy generation.
