A reader friendly, strategically structured introduction to glycosciences, guiding from the basics of the sugar alphabet and pertinent aspects of chemical/natural glycosylation to functional carbohydrate recognition (sugar code), with an eye on emerging medical relevance. All chapters, intimately connected by cross–referencing, share the same interdisciplinary level to make the information readily digestible. Story–telling info boxes add an entertaining touch.

Written by a team of renowned glycoscientists from the forefront of research with the clear intention to convey their enthusiasm for teaching key lessons and edited by a leading figure of the field, this book is a perfect primer for students in life and medical sciences and for specialists looking for a concise overview. With its remarkable set of summary illustrations and its focus on landmark references, it is ideally suited as practical resource to teach classes, run courses and get prepared for contributing to the dynamic development of glycosciences.
