Emerging from its roots in classical carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry, glycobiology has become a vibrant, expanding, and important extension of modern molecular biology. Over the years, many outstanding monographs and books have documented important advances in this area and summarized critical methods and concepts. These volumes continue to serve as excellent resources for those interested in glycobiology. Why then should one publish an additional book on the subject? Most of these prior volumes have been directed at the specialist, assuming a substantial level of technical sophistication and expertise and a working knowledge of the relevant jargon. We present here a book that seeks to fulfill a somewhat different need: to summarize the current state of the art for the expert and yet serve as a resource for the novice wishing to explore the essentials of glycobiology.
