The Photosynthesis of Carbon Compounds
by Melvin Calvin, James Alan Bassham
Publisher: W.A. Benjamin 1962
Number of pages: 156
In this book we review the evidence leading to the formulation of the carbon reduction cycle and discuss its quantitative importance. We describe as far as possible the biosynthetic pathways which we believe exist in the chloroplast. We show how newly reduced carbon from the carbon reduction cycle provides the starting material for these pathways. Our objective is to map complete synthetic sequences from carbon dioxide to final products.

The book introduces physical and biochemical concepts that determine the conformation of a protein. It starts by describing how DNA is converted into proteins and then continues with those factors that influence conformational change in a protein.
