About this book

Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses is a compilation of holistic responses of cyanobacteria ranging from ecology and physiology to modem aspects of molecular biology and biochemistry. It presents research in cyanobacterial stress biologies, from classical to the most modern, and provides a holistic view of cyanobacterial bioenergetics under different abiotic stresses.

Authors focus on topics ranging from evolution, ecophysiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology and discuss genomics and proteomics of cyanobacteria under abiotic stresses. Written by a team of global experts from 12 countries, Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses was created for phycologists, marine biologists, chemists, limnologists, botanists, and students of related fields.
