The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, 3rd Edition

Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use (Volume 1)


The gold-standard reference?covering the basic biology of the Chlamydomonas alga and techniques for its laboratory analysis  


Originally published as the standalone Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, then expanded as the first volume in a three-part comprehensive gold-standard reference,?The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook: Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use?has been fully revised and updated to include a?wealth of new resources for the Chlamydomonas community. Early chapters cover current understandings of its taxonomy, ultrastructure, cell and life cycles, and nuclear and organelle genomes, followed by technique-oriented chapters covering such topics as cell culture, mutagenesis, genetic analysis, construction of mutant libraries, and protein localization using immunofluorescence.  


This volume presents the latest in research and best practices, making it a must-have resource for researchers and students working in plant science and photosynthesis, fertility, mammalian vision, and biochemistry; crop scientists; plant physiologists; and plant, molecular, and human disease biologists.

Key Features

  • Remains the only complete reference to provide both the historical background and the most up-to-date information and applications on Chlamydomonas
  • Includes best practices for applications in research, including methods for culture, genetic analysis, genomic and transcriptomic analysis, and mutant screening
  • Helps researchers solve common laboratory problems, provides details on the properties of particular strains, and offers a comprehensive survey of molecular approaches
