    This volume presents a state-of-the art research in biochemistry, molecular biology and medical application. A glossary of specialized terms is appended. Each chapter is contributed by an expert or group of experts dedicated to increase our understanding of Dunaliella. All the chapters were reviewed internally by their colleagues, editors and external reviewers; this was followed by a final revision. The book provides a balanced multi-disciplinary communication and contributes to our understanding of this unique alga. It is addressed to graduate students and scientists as a summary of current thoughts on Dunaliella.
