The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook Summary:

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 Key Features * Provides access to previously unpublished data from genetic analysis * Provides descriptions of mutant strains * Depicts summary tables comparing properties of different species and their mutant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.

The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use Summary:

Dr. Harris has played a major role in the development of this organism as a model system. Her previous version of the Chlamydomonas Sourcebook which published in 1989, has been a classic in the field and is considered required reading for anyone working with this organism. This latest edition has been expanded to include three volumes providing 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. Methods for Chlamydomonas research and best practices for applications in research, including methods for culture, preservation of cultures, preparation of media, lists of inhibitors and other additives to culture media, are included. Additions to this volume also include help with common laboratory problems such as contamination, student demonstrations, and properties of particular strains and mutants. This volume is part of a 3-Volume Set (ISBN: 978-0-12-370873-1) and is also sold individually. Expanded revision of gold standard reference Includes latest advances in research, including completion of the genome Provides broad perspective with studies in cell and molecular biology, genetics, plant physiology and related fields Available as part of a 3-Volume Set or sold individually

The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook 3 Vol Set Summary:

In recent years Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (C. reinhardtii) has proved to be an outstanding model for investigation of signal transduction, rhodopsin-based vision, and the evolution of sexual processes. The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook, first published in 1989, summarized the development of this alga as a laboratory system beginning in the 1940s. Since the first edition published, Chlamydomonas research has grown significantly. This revised three-volume set, which includes the Sourcebook, Chlamydomonas Metabolic Processes, and Chlamydomonas Motility and Taxis Responses stands as the most comprehensive reference for this important research organism. This set retains historical material, and culture methods and 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. Edited by the leading researcher in chlamydomonas science Includes best practices for applications in research, including methods for culture, preservation of cultures, preparation of media, lists of inhibitors, and more Aids researchers with common laboratory problems such as contamination and details on properties of particular strains and mutants The latest advances in research including completion of the genome A broad perspective for studies in cell and molecular biology, genetics, plant physiology and related fields

The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use Summary:

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.

The Chlamydomonas Sourcebook Cell Motility and Behavior Summary:

This volume reviews virtually everything that is known about cell motility and behavior in Chlamydomonas. World experts in each area focus on mitosis and cytokinesis; flagellar assembly and motility; intraflagellar transport, and more will use this reference as a guide for understanding human diseases of the cilium. The volume is richly illustrated and is supplemented by a Website containing both classic and previously unpublished videos of cell motility in Chlamydomonas. Because Chlamydomonas has been the premier model for investigating the function and behavior of cilia and flagella, the chapters summarize the current state of knowledge in these areas as it applies to all ciliated organisms. Thus, this volume will be an essential source for all students and researchers interested in cell motility. This volume is part of a 3-Volume Set (ISBN: 978-0-12-370873-1) and is also sold individually. Includes a table listing the known proteins (with NCBI accession numbers) for each structure discussed, and the known mutations that affect each structure and process Essential reference to a model species for the study of mechanisms of motility in free living cells Includes methods for Chlamydomonas motility research Companion Website with videos illustrates the marvels of the Chlamydomonas flagella in action
