Photoinduced processes in nucleic acids and proteins: Concluding remarks

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Light induced charge and energy transport in nucleic acids and proteins is the basis of fundamental biological processes such as photosynthesis, vision, DNA-photostability, DNA-photodamage and photosensing. This article summarises the concluding remarks given at the Faraday Discussions meeting on this topic. The specific themes arising from the meeting that are discussed herein include charge transfer in nucleic acids and proteins, excited state dynamics and topology, vibrations and dynamic disorder, proteins and charge transfer states, nanobiophotonics coupled to biomedical applications and photosynthesis.
