Genome Property Definition Page

DescriptionYES NO Photosynthesis is defined here as the ability to harness light energy to create new organic compounds from water and CO2. Note that some bacteria perform anoxygenic photosynthesis (either aerobic or anaerobic), an exception to the broadly held view that photosynthesis must convert water and CO2 into oxygen and carbohydrate; this can be achieved by using a H2S rather than H20 as a source of hydrogen, and releasing sulfur or sulfates rather than 02 as waste products. Halobacterium is currently regarded as a photoheterotroph that can harness light for energy for ion pumps but cannnot synthesize new organic compounds from this energy, nor release 02. The state ARGUABLE had been applied in this case, but is now retired in favor of the NO state.
