Originally published as the stand-alone Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, then expanded as the second volume in a three-part comprehensive gold-standard reference, The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook: Organellar and Metabolic Processes has been fully revised and updated to include a wealth of new knowledge and resources for the Chlamydomonas community. It details the tremendous progress recently made with respect to imaging the ultrastructure of cells, dissecting acclimation and biosynthetic responses, and elucidating molecular processes underlying the biology of organelles. In particular, this volume includes exciting new developments in the use of imaging technologies for examining supramolecular organization of the chloroplast, defining mechanisms of branched electron transfer pathways in photosynthesis, dissecting the organization of pyrenoids and CO2 concentration mechanisms, presenting the intricacies associated with acclimation to environmental conditions and providing new insights into dark metabolism and the network of fermentative metabolism. This book thus presents the latest advances in both the research and uses of new experimental approaches and technologies, making this a must-have resource for researchers and students working in plant science and photosynthesis, fertility, mammalian vision, aspects of human disease, acclimation to environmental change, and the biogenesis of cellular complexes. Describes molecular techniques, analysis of the recently sequenced genome, reviews of the current status of the diverse fields in which Chlamydomonas is used as a model organism Provides methods for Chlamydomonas research and best practices for their applications; this includes methods for cell culture, preservation of cultures, preparation of media, lists of inhibitors, and other additives to culture media, classical genetic manipulation, and new approaches for gene transfer and editing technologies Assists researchers with common laboratory problems such as contamination

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (C. reinhardtii) is a unicellular green alga whose simple life cycle and ease of growth and manipulation for genetic analysis have made it a popular organism for research in diverse areas of cell biology and genetics. C. reinhardtii is important to a variety o research from studies of flagellar biogenesis and function that are highly relevant to medical research on sperm motility and ciliary function to work on chloroplast biogenesis and photosynthesis with critical importance for agriculture. In recent years it has also proved to be an outstanding model for investigation of signal transduction, rhodopsin-based vision, and the evolution of sexual processes. The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, published in 1989 by Academic Press, summarized the development of this alga as a laboratory system beginning in the 1940s, reviewed each major research area, as well as providing methods for growth, genetic analysis, and preparation of cellular fractions. Since the first edition published in 1989, Chlamydomonas research has grown significantly. This revised three-volume set which includes the Sourcebook, Chlamydomonas Metabolic Processes, and Chlamydomonas Motility and Taxis Responses provides the most comprehensive reference for this important research organism. The reference retains historical material, culture methods and some illustrations from the original book while adding molecular techniques, analysis of the recently sequenced genome, and reviews of the current status of the diverse fields in which Chlamydomonas is used as a model organism. * Expanded revision of gold standard reference * Includes latest advances in research including completion of the genome * Provides broad perspective with for studies in cell and molecular biology, genetics, plant physiology and related fields.

During the last ten years, knowledge about the multitude of adaptive responses of plants to low oxygen stress has grown immensely. The oxygen sensor mechanism has been discovered, the knowledge about the interaction network of gene expression is expanding and metabolic adaptations have been described in detail. Furthermore, morphological changes were investigated and the regulative mechanisms triggered by plant hormones or reactive oxygen species have been revealed. This book provides a broad overview of all these aspects of low oxygen stress in plants. It integrates knowledge from different disciplines such as molecular biology, biochemistry, ecophysiology and agricultural / horticultural sciences to comprehensively describe how plants cope with low oxygen stress and discuss its ecological and agronomical consequences. This book is written for plant scientists, biochemists and scientists in agriculture and ecophysiology.
