WP 4 : Enabling Glycotechnologies

Work-package 4 will develop new technologies for the detection and characterization of glyco-compounds and libraries of compounds for long term use. The developments in synthetic and analytical methods, and the set-up of glycoscience databases will provide a tool-kit for the community

Objectives

  • to provide the community with panels of biomolecules for research in glycosciences;
  • to develop tools for characterizing single objects such as glycomolecules, glycoconjugates, lectins, glyco-enzymes;
  • to improve structural approaches for solving the structure of complex glycans and their interactions with receptors.
     

Description of the work

  • Task 1: Production and engineering of glycans and glycan-acting proteins.
  • Task 2: Novel analytical methods for characterizing glycomolecules.
  • Task 3: Improving methods for solving the structure of glycans and complexes with receptors. 
  • Task 4: Enabling glycobiology databases.
