Essentials of Glycobiology, 4th edition

The fourth edition of this primary textbook in the field continues in the prior tradition to provide a basic overview of Glycobiology, directed toward the advanced undergraduate or the beginning graduate-level student of molecular and cellular biology and biomedicine.

This edition includes a broader focus on all lineages of life forms ; a wider range of topics, from biology and medicine to chemistry, bioenergy, and materials science ; a more diverse and international group of contributing authors with expertise in specific areas ; further expansion of the monosaccharide symbol nomenclature for representation of glycans ; and greater attention to informatics, with relevance to exploring the glycome in relation to the genome, transcriptome, proteome, lipidome, and metabolome.
