Ed. by Sabeeha Merchant et al.
The 30 articles in the 2008 edition of the annual series summarize recent advances in plant biochemistry and biosynthesis Biosynthesis
The synthesis of more complex molecules from simpler ones in cells by a series of reactions mediated by enzymes. The overall economy and survival of the cell is governed by the interplay between the energy gained from the breakdown of compounds , genetics, cell differentiation, acclimation acclimation /ac·cli·ma·tion/ (ak?li-ma´shun) the process of becoming accustomed to a new environment.
