Title: Suppression of Tla1 gene expression for improved solar conversion efficiency and photosynthetic productivity in plants and algae

Abstract

The invention provides method and compositions to minimize the chlorophyll antenna size of photosynthesis by decreasing TLA1 gene expression, thereby improving solar conversion efficiencies and photosynthetic productivity in plants, e.g., green microalgae, under bright sunlight conditions.
