not yet rated|write a review
This handbook provides the first comprehensive overview of the emerging field of glycomics, defined as the study of all complex carbohydrates in an organism or cell ("the glycome"). Beginning with analytic approaches and bioinformatics, this work provides a detailed discussion of relevant databases, data integration, and analysis. It then moves on to a discussion of specific model organism and pathogen glycomes followed by therapeutic approaches to human disorders of glycosylization. Structure and function of glycomes are included along with state-of-the-art technologies and systems approaches to the analysis of glycans.

* Synthesizes contributions from experts in biology, chemistry, bioinformatics, biotechnology, and medicine

* Highlights chapters devoted to chemical synthesis, cancer glycomics and immune cell glycomics

* Includes discussions of proteomics, mass spectrometry, NMR, array technology, and transcriptomics analytic approaches
