Session 1: Glycobiology and Glycochemistry

Glycobiology and Glycochemistry deal with various aspects of glycan’s, including carbohydrate structure, biochemistry, biological functions and applications.Sugars or saccharides are essential components of all living things and aspects of the various roles they play in biology are researched in various biochemical, medical and biotechnological fields. Sugars are the major contributors in nature. Many natural products contain oligosaccharides that are important for their biological and biochemical activity. Carbohydrates have major roles in a wide range of biological processes including signal transduction mechanisms and immune responses.

Session 2: Glycoproteomics Analysis

Glycoproteomics focuses on the role of protein glycosylation in various biological processes. They identify and characterize proteins containing carbohydrates as a post-translational modification.  Mass spectrometry is commonly and widely used to identify the sugar moieties attached. Proteomics studies along with glycans produce large volumes of raw experimental data and inferred biological results. Experimental study of proteomics data focuses on freely-available, centralized data resources that store experimental mass spectrometry data and results.

Session 3: Glycoimmunology

Carbohydrates were essential in the early history of immunology in depicting the identity of antigens which are recognized by antibodies. The capacity of these antibodies to recognize glycans and carbohydrate related molecules was exploited in studies defining the size of the antigen-binding site. Various carbohydrate-binding proteins, or lectins, have been identified on the surfaces of immune cells which intensify the significance of carbohydrates in both innate and adaptive immune responses in development of modern vaccines and immunological therapeutics. Recently glycobiologists and immunologists are now collaborating to explore this crucial field in the area of immunobiology

Session 4: Glycans in Diseases and Therapeutics

Glycomedicine plays the significant role in cell-cell adhesion i.e. a technique utilized by cells of the immune system by means of sugar-binding proteins called lectins, which distinguishes specific carbohydrate moieties. Glycans are the building blocks of carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids and lipids. Glycans play significant roles in many biological phenomena and various pathophysiological processes. .The roles of glycans and glycoconjugates in cancer have been emphasized. A small alteration in glycosylation can hugely regulate the entire pathway and mechanisms of cancer, which leads to an indication as a biomarker development leading to various therapeutics development in cancer research.

Session 5: Glycolipids and Glycopeptides

Glycolipids are lipids with a carbohydrate attached by a glycosidic bond or covalent bond. They maintain the stability of the cell membrane and facilitate cellular recognition, which is crucial to the immune response and in the connections that allow cells to connect to one another to form tissues. They are found on the surface of all eukaryotic cell membranes, where they extend from the phospholipid bilayer into the extracellular environment.

Glycopeptides contain carbohydrate moieties (glycans) that are covalently attached to the side chains of the amino acid residues that constitute the peptide.

Session 6: Mass Spectrometry Analysis

Mass Spectrometry Analysis is a technique that ionizes chemical species and sorts the ions according to their mass-to-charge ratio. It is used for characterization and elucidation of glycan structures. A mass spectrum is a plot of the ion signal as a function of the mass-to-charge ratio during experimental analysis.  Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) and fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry (FAB-MS) may be used to detect intact glycans. Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) also provides good signals for the smaller glycans. Various free and commercial software are now available which interpret MS data and help in Glycan structure characterization.

Session 7: Glycans in Vaccine Development

Recently, the interest in exploiting the biological activity of glycans as vaccine components has considerably increased. On the one hand, carbohydrates display epitopes to generate protective antibodies against pathogen-derived cell wall structures and on the other hand, glycans have the potential to stimulate the immune system. So, they can act as potent vaccine adjuvants. An effective vaccine consists of two major components, the vaccine antigen and an adjuvant. The vaccine antigen is an original or modified part of the pathogen that causes the disease. The response activated by vaccination should induce antigen-specific plasma cells secreting protective antibodies as well as the development of memory T and B cells. Carbohydrate structures on pathogens represent an important class of antigens that can activate B cells to produce protective anti-carbohydrate antibodies in adults.

Session 8: Glycoconjugates, Glycomics and Metabolomics

Glycoconjugates are carbohydrates that are covalently connected to other biological molecules, for example, amino acids (to generate peptidoglycans), proteins (glycopeptides and glycoproteins), lipids (glycolipids and lipopolysaccharides), and other small molecules (glycosides). They are formed by glycosylation process. Glycoconjugates are composed of many different categories, for example, glycoproteins, glycopeptides, glycolipids, peptidoglycans, glycosides and lipopolysaccharides.

Glycomics is a subset of the field of glycobiology that intends to recognize the structure and capacity of the total arrangement of glycans (the glycome) produced in a given cell or living being and identify all the genes that encode glycoproteins.

Metabolomics has experienced a fast innovative advancement in the previous two decades. These advances have prompted the utilization of metabolomics for identifying new biomarkers or elucidate disease mechanism

Session 9: Glycoscience and Monosaccharides

Glycoscience involves an extensive scope of learning and research carbohydrate metabolism, structure, anabolism and function. Glycans are expressed in all microorganisms, including prions, as well as in all higher organisms, thus it is not surprising that their biological and disease impacts are profound. New innovations in the field, along with novel perspectives and insights, are helping to shape the future of glycoscience toward a more rationally integrated discipline alongside other biological and clinical disciplines as glycoscience becomes a cornerstone of modern chemical, biological, and biomedical sciences.

Monosaccharides consist of one sugar unit that cannot be further broken down into simpler sugars. They are also called simple sugars. Examples of monosaccharides include glucose, fructose and galactose.

Session 10: Recent advances in Glycobiology

Glycans are essential components of numerous biotherapeutic agents, varying from natural products to molecules based on various rational designs to recombinant glycoconjugates and glycoproteins. The glycan components of these agents can be important determinants of their biological activity and therapeutic efficacy. Modern patenting of new therapeutics commonly requires clarifications of the composition of matter in the claimed molecule for approval. Various remarkable advances can be found in the areas of imagingstructure prediction technologies and advancement of hybrid methods to understand the structure and function of carbohydrates and proteins.

Session 11: Respiratory System

Respiratory illnesses, regardless of whether acute or chronic, communicable or noncommunicable, impose a major global burden and influence a large number of individuals. Due to the progress in investigational technologies (such as imaging and biomarkers), respiratory diseases can be diagnosed and managed more efficiently. Techniques such as real-time MRI, three-dimensional ultrasonographic computing and ‘visiology’ are extending our comprehension of a range of conditions. So-called ‘biological’ approaches are increasingly prominent in respiratory medicine, and new devices for ventilatory support or endoscopic procedures are constantly becoming available.
