Not only assessing the past, present, and future uses of enzymes to synthesize carbohydrates, this volume also illustrates the significance of carbohydrate chemistry and describes how the combination and use of modern enzyme chemistry can advance exploration in the field. Details research at the interface of chemistry and biology for carbohydrate chemistry by demonstrating how to integrate chemical reactions and biological techniques that can be used to synthesize complex bioactive monosaccharides, oligosaccarides, and glycoconjugates. Of particular interest are chapters by George Whitesides and Chi-Huey Wong covering the use of enzymes in monosaccharide synthesis, and Hindsgaul, Thiem, Nilsson, and Whitesides describing the use of activated sugar nucleosides and glycosyltransferases in the synthesis of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.
