About this book

The capture of sunlight by photosynthetic organisms supplies an enormous amount of the energy required to develop and sustain life on the planet, making photosynthesis one of the most important biological phenomenon on Earth. Updating the popular first edition, Photosynthesis Research Protocols, Second Edition presents detailed descriptions of a broad range of general and fundamental methods that are commonly used by plant biochemists, physiologists, and molecular biologists, all of which are contributed by leading researchers in the field. This vital new edition also features coverage of methods related to the most abundant protein on earth, Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase/Oxygenase. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters of this volume include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and expert tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Photosynthesis Research Protocols, Second Edition serves new photosynthesis researchers as well as experienced scientists seeking to use a new type of preparation or method to study this tremendously influential process.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Photosynthesis research protocols focuses on various aspects of photosynthesis research and its chapters reflect the whole complexity of this research field. … All chapters are of high quality and written by leading scientists in their fields. Illustrations are provided when needed and each protocol is sufficiently detailed also to allow access to beginners in the field. … every photosynthesis researcher will surely find several chapters of interest to them within this book.” (Dario Leister, Annals of Botany, Vol. 112 (1), 2013)

“This book represents a collection of materials and methods that are highly useful for researchers in the field of photosynthesis. … various chapters have been revised and the literature has been updated. … every lab working in the field of photosynthesis should have at least one copy. The protocols described in the various chapters are written in a concise and understandable way.” (Reimund Goss, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 169, 2012)

“This book presents a set of protocols focused to the study of photosynthesis from multiple points of view. … new chapters have been added to this edition dealing with the isolation, quantification of Rubisco and Rubisco activase. All the contributors are experienced scientists on the analyzed subjects. The structure of each chapter … enhances the value of the information. In conclusion, this book is a fundamental reference for plant researchers, both for the wide spectrum of subjects covered and the simplicity of the layout.” (Alejandra Landau and Noemí Colombo, Boletin de Bibleoteca del IMYZA-INTA, Issue 26, June, 2011)
