familiarity, although of necessity do not cover each topic in detail. Chapter 5, which describes the current scientific toolkit for studying glycans, is written largely for the scientific community and for those who have primary responsibility for shaping research programs and directions. The committee’s assessment of this toolkit and of the needs and gaps remaining to advance the field is encapsulated in the report’s concluding chapter, which lays out a glycoscience roadmap and research goals. Appendixes to the report contain committee member biographies (Appendix A) and additional information on the committee’s data-gathering efforts (Appendixes B, C, and D). A glossary of terms also is included (Appendix E).
