Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Chemiosmosis 3: Evolution of Chemiosmosis

Students follow the evolution of chemiosmosis and the role it played in the evolution of cellular life. Students will: 1) learn about chemical and cellular changes on early earth; 2) analyze efficiency of early forms of chemiosmosis; 3) compare mechanisms of non- and oxygenic photosynthesis, and 4) evaluate metabolic advantages of several endosymbiotic relationships....
