This is the only single source available that includes all the necessary information on this vital laboratory organism. No other existing book both describes the basic biology of this experimental model system for cellular and molecular biology and at the same time gives instructions for its complete laboratory use. This thorough, self-contained laboratory tool reviews both past and present research, includes a significant quantity of previously unpublished data, and is lavishly illustrated with useful diagrams and electron micrographs. The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook belongs on the lab bench of everyone working with these green algae. Features * Provides access to previously unpublished data from genetic analysis * Provides descriptions of mutant strains * Depicts summary tables comparing properties of different species and their mutant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.Elizabeth H. Harris is the author of 'The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook: A Comprehensive Guide to Biology and Laboratory Use', published 1989 under ISBN 9780123268808 and ISBN 012326880X.
