About this guide
This special issue features 10 early- and mid-career scientists who are on their way to widespread acclaim — they have already impacted their research fields, and in many cases, their careers are just getting started. Two of the SN 10: Scientists to Watch are Chong Liu and José Dinneny. The article “Photosynthesis reinvented” describes how Liu is developing a highly efficient artificial photosynthetic system driven by bacteria-friendly catalysts. “How plants hunt water” describes Dinneny’s investigation of how lateral roots are able to grow toward water. This guide covers concepts related to plants and photosynthesis. In a related activity, students will develop their own Jeopardy!-like game to get to know the SN 10.
