"The view that glycans are more complex and difficult to study than proteins and nucleic acids is no longer true. 'The Sugar Code' teaches us they are sweet and easy." - Rocco Ungaro , University of Parma, Italy "...a must-have for every library collection on carbohydrates and a great resource for chemistry and biology students curious for an entry into the rapidly growing area of glycosciences." - ChemBioChem 2010 "Because of the diverse nature of this subject, this important and topical text belongs in the library of everyone working in the interdisciplinary field of glycosciences." - Chemie in Labor und Biotechnik , 07-08/2010 (review in German) A reader friendly, strategically structured introduction to glycosciences, guiding from the basics of the sugar alphabet and pertinent aspects of chemical/natural glycosylation to functional carbohydrate recognition (sugar code), with an eye on emerging medical relevance. All chapters, intimately connected by cross-referencing, share the same interdisciplinary level to make the information readily digestible. Story-telling info boxes add an entertaining touch. Key Features: Written by a team of renowned glycoscientists from the forefront of research with the clear intention to convey their enthusiasm for teaching key lessons and edited by a leading figure of the field, this book is a perfect primer for students in life and medical sciences and for specialists looking for a concise overview. With its remarkable set of summary illustrations and its focus on landmark references, it is ideally suited as practical resource to teach classes, run courses and get prepared for contributing to the dynamic development of glycosciences.
