As you're probably aware, a new edition of The Chlamydomonas
Sourcebook is currently in production. We are looking for
photographs or drawings suitable for the covers of each of the three
volumes. These illustrations can be in full color.
Our editors at Elsevier would like to have the final illustrations in
hand by April 18th, so we need to work quickly. If you have images
that you think might be suitable, please send low-resolution .jpg
files for review to Elizabeth Harris, chlamy from duke.edu.
The three volumes, with their working subtitles, are as follows:
Volume 1. Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use (by
Suitable illustrations might include light micrographs or EMs of
individual cells or gametes pairing; we're open to all possibilities
Volume 2. Organellar and Metabolic Processes (edited by David Stern)
For this one, perhaps something on the "green" side of Chlamy?
Roughly half of this volume is concerned with various aspects of
metabolism, and half with photosynthesis, respiration, and biogenesis
of chloroplast and mitochondria.
Volume 3. Cell Motility and Behavior (edited by George Witman)
Here we'd like to see an immunofluorescence image of the cell, an EM
of the flagellum/basal body, or perhaps a line drawing illustrating
IFT or some other process or structure.
Thanks in advance for your interest and help!
