Tokyo is the capital and most populous prefecture of Japan. Located at the head of Tokyo Bay, the prefecture forms part of the Kanto region on the central Pacific coast of Japan's main island, Honshu. Tokyo is the political and economic centre of the country, as well as the seat of the Emperor of Japan and the national government. 


Session 1:  Glycobiology: It’s Role in Human Health

Glycobiology research plays a pivotal role from the perspective of human health. In order to maintain and advance the recognition of important glycobiological features and the application of glycans and glyco-engineering strategies in the design of novel treatments to improve human health, Experts now identify that glycans play critical roles in cell regulation, human health and disease progression. The experts at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center have experience and knowledge that make us a world leader in this field, and are creating tools that are the basis for the next generation of diagnostics and treatments.

Session 2:  Synthesis and Biological Role of Glycans

The biological functions of glycans span the range from those that appear to be relatively subtle, to those that are crucial for the growth, development, functioning, or survival of the organism that produces them. The biological functions of glycans can be divided into two broad groups: (1) the structural and modulatory properties of glycans and (2) the specific identification of glycans by other molecules most commonly, glycan-binding proteins (GBPs). The biological effects of changing glycosylation in numerous structures appear to be extremely variable and unpredictable. A particular glycan can have diverse functions in different tissues or at different intervals in development (organism-intrinsic functions) or in different environmental contexts (organism-extrinsic functions). Methods taken to recognize the biological roles of glycans comprise the inhibition of initial glycosylation, prevention of glycan chain elongation, alteration of glycan processing, genetic elimination of glycosylation sites, enzymatic or chemical deglycosylation of completed chains, and the study of naturally occurring genetic variants and mutants in glycosylation.

Session 3: Glycans in Diseases and Therapeutics

Glycomedicine functions a pivotal role in cell-cell adhesion i.e. a tool utilized by cells of the immune system through sugar-binding proteins called lectins, which identify specific carbohydrate portions. Glycans (carbohydrate oligomers) are the so-called “building blocks” of carbohydrates, nucleic acids, proteins and lipids play foremost roles in numerous biological phenomena as well as in various pathophysiological processes. Many researchers have now understood that glycosylation, i.e. the addition of glycans to a protein backbone, is the most abundant post translational modification reactions and is a significant field of research and sometimes they require a glycobiology method to be exploited.

Session 4: Glycans in Vaccine Development

Glycans are at the core of many disorders and diseases generating the chance of exploiting them for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. There are many biochemical paths and diseases in which glycans are intricately involved. Evaluating the huge potential and the capacity that glycobiology holds, many pharma and biotech companies have already started assigning their R&D budget to it. Currently, with our drug resource fast depleting against drug resistant and mutant pathogens, glycobiology hold an intact source of new candidate drugs.

Session 5: Glycans in Drug Design

Glycans are constituents of many bio-therapeutic agents, extending from natural products to molecules based on rational design to recombinant glycoproteins. The glycan constituents of these agents can be significant factors of their biological activity and therapeutic efficacy. Biochemistry and Glycobiology encompasses a multidisciplinary study of carbohydrate-binding proteins (lectins), glycolipids and some other plant proteins that are capable of relating with endogenous or foreign (macro) molecules. The importance of the research is on protein-carbohydrate interaction and their contribution in signalling processes in plants or in plant protection. Based on the generated fundamental awareness new approaches are being developed to shield crop plants against pests and diseases.

Session 6: Enzyme discovery

Enzymes are both macromolecular and micromolecular proteins and are located evidently. They are macromolecular biological catalysts and boost up chemical reactions. Enzymology  deals with the study of enzymes, their kinetics, structure, and function, in addition to their relation to each different. Enzymes play a totally crucial function in the world. They act as a catalyst for a chemical response, whether that reaction includes the execution of DNA for the cause of cellular repair or for the digestion of any forms of meat as well as fowl. Biochemistry is the department of technology which offers with the chemical strategies within and associated with residing organisms. It is a laboratory based totally science that mixes each biology and chemistry. Biochemistry mainly focuses on methods that occur at a molecular level like interior our cells, reading components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells speak with each other. Biochemists need to apprehend how the molecular structure relates to its function, and then allow them to are expecting that how the molecules will have interaction. Biochemistry covers a number medical disciplines, which incorporates genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant technology and medication.

Session 7: Enzymes in Food Technology

Enzymes are equally important in food technology as very like to the other fields. Preservation of food and fermentation enzymes are most widely used. Cheese and brewing rely on enzyme activity in various stages of processing. Traditional food products like yoghurt and many more depend on enzymes. Mostly commonly used bread is also a end product of enzymatic reaction. Enzymes used may be endogenous like amylase used in mashing, like wise yoghurt Accessibility of substrate by enzymes.enzymes are proteins that break down larger molecules like fats, proteins and carbs into smaller molecules that are easier to absorb across the small intestine. Without sufficient digestive enzymes, the body is unable to digest food particles properly, which may lead to food intolerances.

Session 8: Enzymology in Genetics

Enzymology in Genetics characteristics is the examination of single character and their part in the manner in which traits or conditions are passed beginning with one age then onto the following. Genomics is a term that depicts the examination of all parts of a life shape's characteristics. Genomic testing is broader, with no target. Genomic testing joins asking about huge areas of acquired material and data, from which wide or particular conclusions might be drawn. A couple of issue and complex diseases that have been considered in the field of genomics fuse asthma, development, diabetes and coronary sickness Cellular and Molecular Genetics Genomics: Disease and Evolution Stem cells and Regenerative Medicine Bioinformatics in Human Genetics Cytogenetics Cancer and Genome Integrity Congenital Disorder Transplantation.

Session 9: Clinical Enzymology

Synthetic compounds are forces that extension the rate or speed of physiologic reactions. Each and every reaction in our body occurs with the help of an impetus. At the point when all is said in done, most mixes are accessible in cells at impressively higher obsessions than in plasma. Estimation of their levels in plasma indicates whether their tissue of beginning stage is hurt inciting the landing of intracellular parts into the blood. This structure the start of clinical enzymology. Thusly clinical enzymology implies estimation of compound development for the finding and treatment of diseases. Spectrometry, electrophoresis & immunoassay Chemical pathology Toxicology.

Session 10: Enzymology in Drug Discovery

Enzymes are the proteins in the drug plan that go about as solution centre’s for the sicknesses amid the time spent pharmaceutical divulgence and progression. There is a number of solution targets drew in with the arranging of the prescription Medicine centre as a nucleic destructive or a protein (e.g. an exacerbate, a receptor) whose development can be modified by a pharmaceutical. The prescription can be a little nuclear weight substance compound or a natural, for instance, a balancing operator or a recombinant protein. The solution target should have been given off an impression of being ground-breaking/mechanically drawn in with the illness by pertinent in vitro or in vivo models.
