The volume, Glycome: The Sweet Enigma, provides a comprehensive understanding of the enigmatic identity of the glycome, a complex but important area of research. The volume thoroughly deals with almost all aspects of the glycome, i.e., elucidation of the glycan identity enigma and its role in regulation of the cellular process and in disease etiology. It bridges the knowledge gap in understanding the glycome, from being a cell signature to its applications in disease etiology. In addition, it details many of the major insights regarding the possible role of glycome in various diseases as a therapeutic marker has also been highlighted.

Adeel Malik, PhD
Assistant Professor, Perdana University Centre for Bioinformatics (PU-CBi), Selangor, Malaysia
Adeel Malik, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the Perdana University Center for Bioinformatics (PU-CBi), Malaysia. He obtained his PhD (2009) from the Dept. of Biosciences, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), New Delhi, India. During his PhD, he developed computational methods for the prediction of carbohydrate binding sites in proteins using sequence and evolutionary information (Malik and Ahmad, BMC Struct Biol, 2007). This was the first sequence-based method to predict carbohydrate-binding sites in proteins, which was well received by the scientific community. Realizing that it is not easy to retrieve protein-carbohydrate complexes from PDB, he continued this work as a scientist at the Biomedical Informatics Center, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India, where he developed an elaborate database of protein-carbohydrate complexes, integrating sequence-based prediction tools in it (www.procarb.org). He obtained his postdoctoral fellowship from the School of Computational Sciences, Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS), Seoul, South Korea. As a part of his research, he explored lectin-carbohydrate interactions via community-based network analysis by using glycan array data. Later he worked as an Assistant Professor at School of Biotechnology, Yeungnam University, South Korea. His other research interests include the study of chronic kidney diseases, skeletal muscle development, and understanding the role of glycogenes in various biological processes by using different bioinformatics methods. He has published about 19 research articles in high-impact journals including 3 book chapters.
