Why and to whom my research is important?

In English:
We want to understand how the phytochrome protein works. Phytochrome is the light detector of plants, activating germination, flowering, and elongation, in response to light. Understanding how the light signal is amplified into the cell is a first step towards being able to control and develop nano-machines, which respond to light.
