Perfectly timed, this handbook covers many important aspects of the topic that have only recently been understood -- making this a truly comprehensive work. With its extensive use of color, it surveys the most important proteins involved in photosynthesis, discussing the structural information we have at our disposal. Most chapters are dedicated to one protein, while a few also summarize general associated concepts. The book also has an accompanying website that contains data files and animations to allow readers to visualize many of the complicated proteins presented. A must for anyone studying photosynthesis and structural biology, as well as those working in the plant and crop biotechnology industry.
