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.

One calls a lot of things propositions. If one sees this, then one can discard the idea Russell and Frege had that logic is a science of certain objects-propositions, functions, the logical constants-and that logic is like a natural science such as zoology and talks about these objects as zoology talks of animals. Like a natural science, it could s...
