The Molecular Biology of Chloroplasts and Mitochondria in Chlamydomonas

The Molecular Biology ofChloroplasts and a genetic dissection ofphotosynthesis was first Mitochondria in Chlamydomonas is the seventh recognized by Paul Levine. Together with his volume to be published in the series Advances in coworkers, he initiated along-rangegenetic approach Photosynthesis of Kluwer Academic Publishers which proved to be highly successful. It provided (Series Editor: Govindjee). Volume 1 dealtwith The genetic support for the linear Z scheme of Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria; Volume 2 with photosynthesis and led to the identification ofnew Anoxygenic PhotosyntheticBacteria; Volume 3 with components ofthe photosynthetic electron transfer BiophysicalTechniques in Photosynthesis; Volume 4 chain such astheRieskeproteinofthe cytochrome with Photosynthesis and the Environment; and complex. Volume 6 with Lipids in Photosynthesis: Structure, During the past 20 years, the powerful techniques of molecular biology and genetics, and the Function and Genetics. The main goal ofthis book is to provide a development ofmethods for efficient nuclear and comprehensive overview ofcurrent research with chloroplast transformation of C. reinhardtii have the green alga Chlamydomonas on chloroplast and greatly enhanced the potential ofthis organism as an mitochondrial biogenesis and function, with special experimental system for studying chloroplast emphasis on the assembly and structure-function biogenesis. This has led to impressive advances in relationships ofthe constituents ofthe photosynthetic our understanding of the regulation of chloroplast apparatus.
