In this lab, the process of photosynthesis was demonstrated using spinach leaf samples and their production of oxygen, as well as the effects of the inhibitors DCMU and sodium azide on photosynthesis in Chlamydomonas. In my lab group, we initially set up the Chlamydomonas experiment by combining 10 mL of Chlamydomonas with metabolic poisons. In the first tube, we combined the 10 mL of Chlamydomonas with 100 microliters of 10 millimole concentration of DCMU. In the second tube, we combined the Chlamydomonas with 100 microliters of 1 mole concentration of sodium azide. And as a control, in the last tube the Chlamydomonas were placed in sterile water. The tubes were capped and then inverted to mix, and then the mixtures were placed into locomotion chambers under a light source. ½ of the locomotion chamber was covered in aluminum foil to provide a dark environment for the organisms. The concentration of the Chlamydomonas was observed at 0 minutes, 10 minutes, and then 20 minutes. Our
