  • "Like the previous Vols. 478 and 479, the book is very informative, and it is novel both in terms of problems discussed and also new methods used for glycobiology. This book will be very useful to a wide variety of readers from graduate students, researchers in academia, in industry, and to those who teach glycobiology and glycosciences at various levels.
