  • "This book is very informative and is novel both in terms of problems discussed and also new methods used for glycobiology. This is also typical for the two subsequent volumes of "Methods in Enzymology" (Vols. 479 and 480), which will be also reviewed in Biochemistry (Moscow). This book will be very useful for glycobiologists and bioorganic chemists as well as for researchers working in molecular biology and biotechnology. It can also be recommended for university students and their teachers as supplemental material for the above-mentioned fields of science."--Biochemistry (Moscow)
