    Our Speaker, Dr Patricia Sanchez-Baracaldo, is interested in the co-evolution of life and the biosphere. In this talk, she will describe advances in understanding the evolution of chloroplasts. What are chloroplasts and why are they important?

    Chloroplasts are the tiny organelles within plant cells that carry out the process of photosynthesis. Along with another essential organelle – the mitochondria, they are thought to be descended from ancient bacteria. Both, then, are living within animals and plants in a symbiotic relationship.

    Dr Sanchez-Baracaldo works at the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol. Patricia’s University Webpage
