Glycosylation and the global virome



The sugars that coat the outsides of viruses and host cells are key to successful disease transmission, but they remain understudied compared to other molecular features. Understanding the comparative zoology of glycosylation - and harnessing it for predictive science - could help close the molecular gap in zoonotic risk assessment.

Version notes

The α2-3 structure in Figure 1A has been changed. Linkage information has been removed from the O-linked structure in Figure 1B.
