Chemical Reviews : Glycosciences Issue.
The Chemical Reviews thematic issue is called “Glycosciences” to illustrate the broader impact of carbohydrate chemistry on other sciences, opening new frontier knowledge and technologies that have only become possible through cross-disciplinary collaborations.
These have led to exciting new discoveries, for example, in our understanding and treatment of microbial infections. Glycosylation is now understood as a fundamental process regulating intra- and intercellular processes. By analyzing the glycomes of cells and organisms, new insights and techniques are being developed for personalized healthcare and medicine. At the same time, carbohydrate chemistry has also benefitted from advances in other areas of science, and one of the most prominent interactions has been with computational scientists. The complexity of the carbohydrate structure through its multiple combinatorial stereochemistries of monosaccharides and glycosidic linkages has always attracted a cadre of dedicated glycoscientists. Still, it has been lamented by the broader community as being too complicated. However, we are now in the age of machine learning and artificial intelligence, providing us with tools that can tackle complexity in biology and celebrate and recognize it as an essential aspect of Nature. This thematic issue reviews some specific examples
