Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and photosynthesis: genetics to genomics.

Author information

Department of Plant Biology, The Carnegie Institution of Washington, Stanford 94305, USA.


Genetic and physiological features of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have provided a useful model for elucidating the function, biogenesis and regulation of the photosynthetic apparatus. Combining these characteristics with newly developed molecular technologies for engineering Chlamydomonas and the promise of global analyses of nuclear and chloroplast gene expression will add a new perspective to views on photosynthetic function and regulation.
