The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, 3rd Edition

Cell Motility and Behavior (Volume 3)


The gold-standard reference?introducing this multidisciplinary science,?fully revised and updated with the latest discoveries


Originally published as the standalone Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, then expanded as the third volume in a three-part comprehensive gold-standard reference,?The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook: Cell Motility and Behavior has been fully revised and updated to include the wealth of new resources for the Chlamydomonas community. Reflecting the significant advancement in?the understanding of the role of basal bodies and cilia play in human diseases, this volume employs quantitative proteomics and mass spectroscopy as well as?cryo?EM tomography and single particle?cryo?EM. Other topics such as current insights?on?mitosis and cytokinesis, ciliary assembly and motility, intraflagellar?transport, and more help build an understanding of human diseases of the cilium.


Cell Motility and Behavior presents the latest in research and best practices, making this 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.
