The Purple Phototrophic Bacteria is a comprehensive survey of all aspects of these fascinating bacteria, the metabolically most versatile organisms on Earth. This book is a compilation of 48 authoritative chapters, written by leading experts who highlight the huge progress made in spectroscopic, structural and genetic studies of these bacteria since 1995, when the last book on this topic was published.
This new volume is similarly intended to be the definitive text on these bacteria for many years to come, and it will be a valuable resource for experienced researchers, doctoral & masters students, as well as advanced undergraduates in the fields of ecology, microbiology, biochemistry, biophysics, integrative biology, and molecular & cell biology. Scientists interested in future applications of these bacteria which could harness their potential for nanotechnology, solar energy research, bioremediation, or as cell factories, will also find this book useful.
From the reviews: "The present book contains 48 authoritative contributions from more than 100 experts on all aspects of purple phototrophic bacteria. ! will be a useful volume for guidance. In summary, this book typifies about biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, eco-physiology and evolution of purple photorophic bacteria. ! This book, as rightfully claimed, shall have a long shelf-life in serving researchers, teachers and students as a reliable resource of references. We strongly recommend this book to all libraries around the world." (Prasanna Mohanty and Sujata R. Mishra, Indian Journal of Experimental Biology, Vol. 47, September, 2009) "Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration Series brings a new comprehensive review of Purple Phototrophic Bacteria. ! In any case the new book has all the qualities to become a new great successor of all the previous reviews of this field ! . I am confident that it will represent a new basic text on anoxygenic phototrophs for many years to come, and it will become a basic source of reference and knowledge for experienced researchers as well as for students ! ."
