Is there research on extending the pigments in plants that
are involved in photosynthesis?

Is it possible to change the actvity of Rubisco, to increase
the yield of photosnythesis? Would it be possible to alter gene
expressions of Rubisco to enhance Photosynthesis?

Is it possible to create a chemical photo array, that will
provide us with a source of oxygen, sugar and energy?
Such a transfer system would be modeled after photosynthesis.
