Marine glycobiology is an emerging and exciting area in the field of science and medicine. Glycobiology, the study of the structure and function of carbohydrates and carbohydrate-containing molecules, is fundamental to all biological systems and represents a developing field of science that has made huge advances in the last half-century. This book revolutionizes the concept of marine glycobiology, focusing on the latest principles and applications of marine glycobiology and their relationships.

Reviews for Marine Glycobiology: Principles and Applications

The book describes carbohydrates conjugated with additional molecules - an area that could be called terra incognita, because it has been unexploited until now. An important part of the book constitutes analytical techniques, which are a challenge. Another important aspect is the practical application of those unique compounds: in biomedicine, bio-based technologies. The book contains 6 sections and 38 chapters which thoroughly discuss different aspects of glycoconjugates. The book would be useful for academic research, students, but also for industry, as the inspiration for development of innovative and bioactive products. -- Katarzyna Chojnacka, Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland
