The Sugar Code
Fundamentals of Glycosciences
edited by Hans-Joachim Gabius

The Sugar Code 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, The Sugar Code is ideally suited as practical resource to teach classes, run courses and get prepared for contributing to the dynamic development of glycosciences.
