Your page looks great, a lot of pictures and important details. You might think about including some scientific figures from one or more of the research papers in addition to the pictures to back up some of your/their points. Also, you should proofread before the deadline to get rid of confusing capitalizations (or lack thereof) on molecule names, and the double 'planet planet' in the intro. If the research is available, you might go into the mechanism by which the FMO complex harvests light energy, just to be thorough. Great job though!


Man, your page is pretty. 8 pictures/figures and over 20 cited sources! You did misspell "characterization" in the title, though. Your intro does a great job of establishing why green sulfur bacteria are interesting to study- the implications of bacteria being allowed to survive in the absence of light, and how it shows life on other planets is possible. You never mention Chlorobium FMO antenna complexes though. You may want to include them in your intro somehow to better set up your topic. Maybe do this by combining your first two sections. The following sections are quite dense and have a ton of molecular biology in it, which i dont quite understand, but it does convey what FMO does, how the subtypes are different, and how they are studied. The section is by far the longest of your sections- see if you could expand the others a bit so the molecular biology of the section does not seem to be the emphasis of the page. Overall, the page is well done. The conclusion is great, and I like the addition of the phylogenetic tree figure. Great work.
