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 abstracts and biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations is also available below. An accompanying journal issue for this meeting was published in Interface Focus.
