Description

In this 3 volume collection focusing on glycomics, readers will appreciate how such discoveries were made and how such methods can be applied for readers’ own research efforts

Key Features

Each chapter has been designed so that enough scientific background will be given in each chapter for further development of methods by readers themselves.
Useful for all levels of scientists starting from the last years of colleges, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows to professors and to all levels of scientists in research institutes including industry.

Readership

All levels of scientists starting from the last years of colleges, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows to professors and to all levels of scientists in research institutes including industry.

Reviews

"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.
