The SUN Chloroplast E-book is a free resource for undergraduate self-guided exploration. It can also be used by high school biology and AP biology teachers in a targeted way to help their students understand the HOW and the WHY of PHOTOSYNTHESIS. This interactive environment was developed through IES and National Science Foundation funding and is available via a link at Milwaukee School of Engineering's SUN Project at http://www.msoe.edu/academics/researc....

The initial CHLOROPLAST page allows one to explore various major protein complexes in the context of a David Goodsell molecular landscape, the SUN Project manipulatives and a simple schematic. Animations in all three contexts set the stage for further exploration. An ELECTRON TRANSPORT CHAIN page synchronizes the detailed path of electrons (HOW carbon is fixed) with the z-scheme (WHY electrons move). Pages devoted to key protein complexes such as PHOTOSYSTEM II and PHOTOSYSTEM I allow one to explore the effect of light, the path of electrons and the relationship to the z-scheme in the context of schematics, animations and additive protein structures. The ATP SYNTHASE and proton pump (CYTOCHROME b6f) pages similarly allow intuitive exploration of structure and function. Advanced, interactive Jmol tutorials provide in-depth analysis of structure/function relationships. This resource can be used in a targeted fashion with novice learners at the high school level; it also affords individual exploration by undergraduates.

Members of the original SUN Project and the Undergraduate SUN Project Research Group, led by Ann Batiza, Ph.D. contributed to its content. Mark Hoelzer led the technical production.
