This volume describes aspects of non-oxygen-evolving photosynthetic bacteria. The 62 chapters are organized into themes of: taxonomy, physiology and ecology; molecular structure of pigments and cofactors; membrane and cell wall structure - antenna structure and function; reaction centre structure and electron/proton pathways; cyclic electron transfer; metabolic processes; genetics; and regulation of gene expression, and applications. The book is intended for use by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and senior researchers in the areas of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology.
