Calvin cycle

The Calvin cycle is a series of biochemical, light independent reactions that take place in the chloroplasts of plants during photosynthesis. A major process in the Calvin cycle is carbon fixation and ultimately, sugars and starches are produced. This picture of leaves shows where in the plant this process takes place.
