Glycoanalysis for Industrial Biotechnology Applications Workshop, 5 Nov, Manchester

Glycans, in the form of polysaccharides or glycoconjugates, are the most abundant class of biomolecules on the planet. Therefore, their structural/functional characterization and exploitation are critical to UK Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy. To achieve this robust, sensitive and accurate analytical tools are essential.

The Glycoanalysis for Industrial Biotechnology Applications Workshop, on 5th November in Manchester, will focus on analysis of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates and explore key opportunities for industrial applications, bringing together academics, instrument manufacturers and bioindustries.

The workshop will aim to formulate potential projects in industrial biotechnology and identify areas of need for investment by IBCarb, RCUK and H2020. There will be key-note talks from industry and academia, networking activities and discussion groups.

Confirmed speakers: Paul Dupree (University of Cambridge), Richard Robinson (Waters), Perdita Barran (University of Manchester)

This event is free to attend and accommodation will be provided for all IBCarb network members. IBCarb Travel bursaries are available for all PhDs and PDRAs attending this event.
