Functional and Molecular Glycobiology explains the chemistry of carbohydrates, and the biosynthesis and diversity of different types of glycans. It looks at the functional role of glycoconjugate compounds in normal cellular processes, in both disease and development. The book also describes how these compounds can be studied, analysed and manipulated for use in biotechnology. Functional and Molecular Glycobiology is a unique introduction to the field bridging the gap between introductory books and current research.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
