The only text to make this important area of biochemistry accessible to an undergraduate audience
Illustrates the biological importance of sugars with diverse examples, to stimulate and engage students throughout the biosciences
Thought-provoking questions linked to the latest research encourage the student to explore the subject for themselves, and gain an appreciation of how current research continues to push forward our understanding of the subject
The glycobiology of disease and the importance of sugars in the development of new therapeutic strategies are highlighted throughout
Online Resource Centre features additional resources for students and lecturers to enhance the educational value of the text
New to this edition

Updated content to reflect the current state of the field: new chapter on cell biology of glycosylation, expanded coverage of congenital disorders, proteoglycans, influenza virus, muscular dystrophy, and cancer
Marginal cross-references between the chemical first part and biological and biomedical second part of the book further emphasise the relevance of structure to function
New and updated special topic boxes represent the current research and applications of glycobiology to disease and therapeutics
Broadened treatment of analytical methods, including glycoarrays, provides an overview of the cutting edge techniques used to increase our understanding
New Journal Clubs feature discussion questions based on research papers and linked to topics featured in the book, to guide the process of assimilating knowledge from the research literature
Sugars are familiar as vital sources of energy. Yet the biological importance of the sugars extends well beyond their value as cellular fuels.

Introduction to Glycobiology reveals the true impact of the sugars on biological systems, explaining their function at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level. Employing a two-part structure, the book leads us through essential principles and concepts upon which the discipline is grounded, before exploring the diverse roles of sugars throughout biological systems, including development, cell signalling, and protein trafficking. It also emphasises the importance of glycobiology in disease, and explains how an understanding of the link between the two is enabling us to develop new therapeutic strategies.

Taking the student from the fundamental principles to the frontiers of the subject, and with a wealth of learning features to get the most out of their studies, Introduction to Glycobiology remains the ideal resource for students and teachers alike.

Online Resource Centre
For students:
· Updates - surveys of key developments in the field, provided on a six-monthly basis, to maintain currency
· Library of 3D, rotatable molecular structures to help students visualize structures and gain a proper appreciation of the link between structure and function
· Hyperlinked references to facilitate access to primary literature

For registered adopters of the book:
· Full colour figures, available for download individually or as PowerPoint slides with key explanatory points
· Answers to end-of-chapter questions
· Journal Clubs - suggested papers and discussion questions linked to topics covered in the book

Readership: Undergraduate and postgraduate biochemistry and biosciences students studying glycobiology. Also suitable for further reading on general biological sciences, biochemistry, cell biology, and immunology courses. The book is likely to be of wide interest to graduate students not necessarily taking a course in the subject as well as postdoctoral researchers and faculty members who want an introduction to this important interdisciplinary field.
