Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, 2nd Edition has been hailed as a major contribution to the plant sciences literature and critical acclaim has been matched by global sales success. Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second will provide a major update, include much new material and reorganise some chapters to further improve the presentation. This book is meticulously organised and richly illustrated, having over 1,000 full-colour illustrations and 500 photographs. It is divided into five parts covering: Compartments, Cell Reproduction, Energy Flow, Metabolic and Developmental Integration, and Plant Environment and Agriculture. Specific changes to this edition include: Completely revised with over half of the chapters having a major rewrite. Includes two new chapters on signal transduction and responses to pathogens. Restructuring of section on cell reproduction for improved presentation. Dedicated website to include all illustrative material. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants holds a unique place in the plant sciences literature as it provides the only comprehensive, authoritative, integrated single volume book in this essential field of study.

Wilhelm Gruissem

Wilhelm Gruissem (* 9. März 1952 in Duisburg) ist ein deutscher Biologe und seit dem 1. Juli 2000 ordentlicher Professor für Pflanzenbiotechnologie im Institut für Pflanzenwissenschaften der ETH Zürich.

Wilhelm Gruissem wurde am 9. März 1952 in Duisburg (Deutschland) geboren. Er studierte Biologie und Chemie an der Universität Bonn und promovierte dort 1979 bei Professor Werner Gottschalk am Institut für Genetik. Die folgenden zwei Jahre verbrachte er als Forschungsassistent am Institut für Physiologische Chemie der Universität Marburg. Danach ging er mit einem Forschungsstipendium an die University of Colorado in den USA. 1983 erhielt er einen Ruf als Assistant Professor für Pflanzenbiologie an der University of California in Berkeley und wurde dort 1990 zum Professor ernannt. Von 1993-1998 war er Direktor des Department of Plant and Microbial Biology in Berkeley. Seit dem 1. Juli 2000 ist er ordentlicher Professor an der ETH Zürich.

Schwerpunkte seiner Forschung sind biochemische Synthesewege und Moleküle, die bei der Kontrolle des Pflanzenwachstums und der Chloroplastenentwicklung mitwirken.

Prof. Gruissem ist ein Fellow der American Association for the Advancement of Science, Mitglied verschiedener wissenschaftlicher Gesellschaften und Editor mehrerer wissenschaftlicher Zeitschriften. Für seine Forschungsarbeiten hat er eine Anzahl von Auszeichnungen erhalten.

1998 stand Gruissem im Zentrum einer wissenschaftspolitischen Kontroverse in den USA. Sein Department an der UC Berkeley ging mit dem Novartis Agro Discovery Institute (heute Syngenta) eine Zusammenarbeit ein, die sich Novartis 25 Millionen Dollar kosten ließ. Gruissem gilt als der Architekt dieses Abkommens, das von den Forschern unter anderem verlangte, einen Vertrag zu unterzeichnen, der es ihnen verbot, wissenschaftliche Resultate ohne Einwilligung von Novartis zu publizieren.[1]

Gruissem war für zahlreiche Firmen als Berater tätig, unter anderen für Monsanto und Syngenta.[2]
