This glycobiology book is truly unique. Produced to commemorate the 80th birthday of Nathan Sharon, Glycobiology is an essential reference tool for anyone working in the field. Most research review volumes are narrowly focused. This book is different. It is a state-of-the-art fully comprehensive review volume covering a deliberately wide spectrum of work in this important field. With 28 chapters, covering over 350 pages, this title describes the latest research findings - from chemistry to biology and from pure science to industrial and medical applications.
The book is written by world-class researchers and brings the reader fully up-to-date with the latest advances and forward thinking. All the major areas of glycobiology are covered including the synthesis of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates, their structural and functional analysis, carbohydrate binding proteins, carbohydrate modifying enzymes, and the applications of glycobiology research in medicine and industry. All active researchers in the glycosciences will value access to this important research compendium whether it be in the local library or in the lab.
