  • This new edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the "quantum jump" in the field of glycostructures
  • Includes three new chapters on: key technology and tools, biosynthesis and glycomedicine
  • Features more than 12,000 chemical reactions and more than 9,000 references
  • Available in print as well as in electronic form

Here is yet another of Springer’s Major Reference Works, an utterly essential resource for scientists in a huge range of disciplines. This one covers the key area of Glycoscience, a rapidly evolving field with applications across the spectrum.

As a reflection of the quantum leap that has been made in the study of glycostructures, the first edition of this book has been completely revised and updated.

The editors provide up-to-date information on glycostructures, their chemistry and chemical biology in the form of a completely comprehensive survey.

The texts are illustrated by more than 2500 figures, chemical structures and reaction schemes (including more than 12,000 individual chemical reactions), and more than 9,000 references.

Glycostructures play highly diverse and crucial roles in a myriad of organisms and important systems in biology, physiology, medicine, bioengineering and technology.

Only in recent years have the tools been developed to partly understand the highly complex functions and the chemistry behind them.

While many facts remain undiscovered, this MRW has been contributed to by a large number of the worldchr
