Cell surface carbohydrates mediate diverse biological processes including fertilisation, inflammation and invasion by pathogens. Our understanding of glycobiology has advanced remarkably over recent years, raising the prospect of applying the methods of synthetic biology to reengineer these systems for new and useful purposes. This meeting will bring together chemists, biologists and physicists to define the emerging field of synthetic glycobiology.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Interface Focus.
