About this book

The study of functional glycomics requires the continuous development of rapid and sensitive methods for the identification of glycan structures and integration to structure-function relationships. In Functional Glycomics: Methods and Protocols, a panel of world-renowned experts provide new developments and emerging glycomics techniques in the form of detailed protocols exploring the fundamental challenges and most cutting-edge novel applications. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters in this volume present brief introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes sections, highlighting key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and easy to use, Functional Glycomics: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal reference for scientists working in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, microbiology, and virology and a guide to appropriate techniques and the design of achievable research plans in this vital field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides a useful introduction to the field of glycobiology as well as detailed protocols relating to methods of analyses. … relevance to the microbiologist who is considering exploring this field and wishes to gain an understanding of current methodologies.” (Sheila Patrick, Microbiology Today, 2010)

“The book consists of 19 chapters prepared by an international team of authors. … book will be very useful source for many researchers in glycobiology fields. It should be recommended also to students and teachers of colleges and universities who specialized in glycobiology. I would like to mention that the book is well done including a materials and methods part to each chapter, references, subject index, figures and tables.” (G. Ya. Wiederschain, Biochemistry, Vol. 75 (11), 2010)
