This mini-review describes the current state of our understanding of the structure and function of the photosynthetic light-harvesting and reaction centres. A comparative approach is used in order to highlight the underlying principles that must be satisfied for efficient energy-transfer (light-harvesting) and electron transfer (charge separation in the reaction centres).
