This two-part thesis focuses on biointerfaces of two different biological systems. It specifically examines the interplay of structure and functionality in these biointerfaces. Part one studies photo-bio-electrochemically active bacteria and the strong dependence of their electrical current generation on electrode structure and pigment organisation. Part two uncovers surprising design principles of photonic structures on flower petals and presents research tools to study disordered optical systems. Biophotovoltaics (BPV) is a newly described biophysical effect in which a biofilm of photosynthetic microorganisms associated with an anode produces electrical curren...
