About this book

Advances in molecular biology technology have profoundly affected the work in this area and have opened up the possibility of manipulating the genes involved in photosynthesis. The field is expanding, and this book provides a compilation of authoritative reviews covering a variety of important issues.

This book is a welcome addition to the Frontiers in Molecular Biology Series....For those requiring a current and comprehensive review of the molecular genetics of photosynthesis, this volume provides an excellent resource.--Quarterly Review of Biology
