Description

Recognition of carbohydrates in biological systems has been gaining more and more attention in recent years. Although methodology for studying recognition has been developing, there is no volume that covers the wide area of methodology of carbohydrate recognition. This volume and its companion, Volume 363, present state-of-the-art methodologies, as well as the most recent biological observations in this area.

Key Features

* Covers the isolation/synthesis of substances used in studying interactions involving carbohydrates * Discussed the methodology for measuring such interactions * Biological roles for such interactions are also covered
