The Calvin cycle is an extremely important process that occurs in photosynthetic organisms. Also known as the dark reactions, the Calvin cycle fixes carbon, or converts carbon dioxide and water into G3P. The most important enzyme in the Calvin cycle is RuBisCo, which allows carbon fixation to occur. The Calvin cycle is occurring in the photosynthetic plant shown in the picture.
