New Genetic Tools for Rhodobacter capsulatus and Structure and Expression of Genes for Carotenoid Biosynthesis
Photosynthetic bacteria are currently used as model systems for the study of genetic, biochemical and physical aspects of photosynthesis. In this article we briefly review genetic methods that we developed for use in Rhodobacter capsulatus and we present recent results on the molecular biology of carotenoid biosynthesis.
