9780123268808: The Chlamydomonas Source Book

The green alga Chlamydomonas is widely used as an experimental model system for studies in cellular and molecular biology, and in particular plant molecular biology. This book is the only single modern compendium of information on its biology and in particular its molecular biology and genetics. Included in addition to much information on the basic biology is material of a very practical nature, namely, methods for culture, preservation of cultures, preparation of media, lists of inhibitors and other additives to culture media, help with common laboratory problems such as contamination, student demonstrations, and properties of particular strains and mutants.
Casual users as well as specialists will find the book to be useful in many ways.
Key Features
* Provides access to previously unpublished data from genetic analysis
* Provides descriptions of mutant strains
* Depicts summary tables comparing properties of different species and their mutant strains
* Explains detailed methods for laboratory procedures of general utility
* Furnishes comparisons of culture media
* Presents lists of inhibitors, mutagens, and other additives to culture media
* Assists with common laboratory problems such as contamination and storage of strains
* Demonstrates protocols for laboratory demonstrations available for undergraduate teaching.

Review:

"Written in a clear and matter-of-fact style and is logically organized... In short, the book is a superb achievement. It should be on the shelf of every person who has an interest in Chlamydomonas as a research system and in every library used by students of biology."--SCIENCE"This is a magnificent book... Throughout, the remarkably readable style is spiced with comments on the significance to related work on other organisms... Clearly this volume is a labor of love."--TRENDS IN GENETICS"Harris has succeeded beautifully in producing for the first time a single reference for the biology, experimental use, and manipulation of Chlamydomonas. Recommended for all colleges and universities with programs in genetics."--CHOICE"This book is a wonderfully detailed account of the cell and molecular biology, genetics, and physiology of the biflagellate green alga, Chlamydomonas... But this is far more than just another laboratory manual. It is a work of considerable scholarship and, more importantly, a labour of love. The author, who is Director of the Chlamydomonas Genetic Center at Duke University, North Carolina, has a feeling and, quite obviously, an affection for her organism that shines out of every page... The production is also first class...highly attractive and readable volume. So much so it will be of interest to a wide range of biologists."--BIOTECHNOLOGY AND APPLIED BIOCHEMISTRY"She has achieved considerable success in compiling a reference tool for use in all aspects of research on this facinating alga."--NATURAL HISTORY BOOK REVIEWS"This is an ambitious undertaking, and the author has succeeded in bringing together a great deal of informationconcerning a diverse array of subjects of Chlamydomonas biology into one text.. Overall, this volume is quite impressive and should be of great use to Chlamydomonas researchers and to scientists seriously contemplating the use of Chlamydomonas as an experimental system. Since the work includes a comprehensive bibliography, this feature alone makes it a valuable resource... The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook will go a long way toward filling the need for a comprehensive reference ib Chlamydomonas biology and laboratory handling... It should be found on the bookshelf of every laboratory engaged in Chlamydomonas research, and it provides an excellent reference for those who are seriously contemplating working with these algae."--CELL
