2015 - Member of Academia Europaea

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

His primary areas of study are Photosystem II, Xanthophyll, Biochemistry, Photochemistry and Photosystem I. His Photosystem II research incorporates themes from Chlorophyll and Chlorophyll fluorescence. His Xanthophyll research integrates issues from Lutein, Violaxanthin, Zeaxanthin and Photoprotection.

As a member of one scientific family, Roberto Bassi mostly works in the field of Photoprotection, focusing on Biophysics and, on occasion, Carotenoid. His Biochemistry and Xanthophyll binding, Chloroplast, Pigment binding, Thylakoid and Light-harvesting complex investigations all form part of his Biochemistry research activities. Roberto Bassi interconnects Chlorophyll Binding Proteins and Quenching, Fluorescence in the investigation of issues within Photochemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Regulation of Photosynthetic Light Harvesting Involves Intrathylakoid Lumen pH Sensing by the PsbS Protein (435 citations)
  • Regulation of Photosynthetic Light Harvesting Involves Intrathylakoid Lumen pH Sensing by the PsbS Protein (435 citations)
  • ARCHITECTURE OF A CHARGE-TRANSFER STATE REGULATING LIGHT HARVESTING IN A PLANT ANTENNA PROTEIN (420 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Photosystem II, Biochemistry, Photosynthesis, Photosystem I and Xanthophyll. The study incorporates disciplines such as Thylakoid, Biophysics, Chlorophyll and Photochemistry in addition to Photosystem II. His Photosynthesis research focuses on subjects like Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, which are linked to Chlamydomonas.

The various areas that Roberto Bassi examines in his Photosystem I study include Photosynthetic reaction centre, Plastoquinone and Absorption band. His Xanthophyll course of study focuses on Violaxanthin and Antheraxanthin. His Photoprotection research includes elements of Non-photochemical quenching, Photoinhibition and Carotenoid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosystem II (50.13%)
  • Biochemistry (42.67%)
  • Photosynthesis (34.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (34.40%)
  • Biophysics (26.13%)
  • Photoprotection (31.47%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Photosynthesis, Biophysics, Photoprotection, Photosystem II and Thylakoid. His research integrates issues of Biomass, Chlorophyll and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii in his study of Photosynthesis. The Biophysics study combines topics in areas such as Quenching, Chloroplast, Photosystem I, Photosystem and Light-harvesting complex.

His work on Energy quenching is typically connected to Singlet oxygen as part of general Photoprotection study, connecting several disciplines of science. Photosystem II is a subfield of Biochemistry that Roberto Bassi studies. Roberto Bassi focuses mostly in the field of Thylakoid, narrowing it down to matters related to Xanthophyll and, in some cases, Photosynthetic reaction centre, Green algae and Arabidopsis.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • LHCII can substitute for LHCI as an antenna for photosystem I but with reduced light-harvesting capacity. (146 citations)
  • Domestication of the green alga Chlorella sorokiniana: reduction of antenna size improves light-use efficiency in a photobioreactor (84 citations)
  • Two mechanisms for dissipation of excess light in monomeric and trimeric light-harvesting complexes (81 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Roberto Bassi spends much of his time researching Light-harvesting complex, Photosynthesis, Photosystem II, Biophysics and Photoprotection. His Photosystem II study results in a more complete grasp of Biochemistry. In Biochemistry, Roberto Bassi works on issues like Quenching, which are connected to Kinase activity, Lutein and Zeaxanthin.

His Biophysics study incorporates themes from Photosystem I and Photosystem. His Photoprotection research includes themes of Photosynthetic efficiency and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Roberto Bassi has researched Photoinhibition in several fields, including Non-photochemical quenching and Photochemistry.
