Webinar on Glycochemistry invites all the global leaders and researchers to share their research at this exclusive scientific program held during February 25th, 2021, which based on the theme “A path to the emerging trends in the field of Glycochemistry research”.

Scientific Sessions of  Glycochemistry 2021 includes Glycans, Glycochemistry, Glycoimmunology, Glycoinformatics, Glycolipids and Glycopeptide, Glyconeurobiology, Glycopathology, Glycoscience, Biochemistry, Proteoglycan and Salic acid.

The Glycochemistry Webinar has a strong emphasis on support and inspiration for the next generation of scientists, along with early-career researchers, a Young Researchers Forum, and activities to encourage interaction with peers and experts. Altogether this conference aims to be an extraordinary cross discipline gathering in the Glycochemistry life sciences for research presentations, discussions, learning’s, inspirations and encouragement with participants leaving with new research knowledge and ideas, and perhaps the beginnings of international collaborations and associations.


Session 1: Glycans

Glycans can be initiate attached to proteins as in glycoproteins and proteoglycans. In general, they are found on the external surface of cells. O- and N-linked glycans are right collective in eukaryotes but may similarly found, although less commonly, in prokaryotes. Glycan classifications cannot be well-defined by a simple linear one-letter code as every duplet of monosaccharide’s can be associate in various ways and tributary structures can be designed. Few of the bioinformatics algorithms established for genomics or proteomics can be straightly adapted for glycomics. The progress of algorithms, which allow a rapid, automatic interpretation of mass spectra to recognise glycan structures, is at this time the most active field of research Glycan immunotherapies, Glycan sensing, Glucosamine Glycans, Gene expression profiling, Glycan synthesis.

Session 2: Glycochemistry

Glycobiology along with the arena of proteomics, mainly the submission of mass spectrometry investigation to protein samples, is well-established and increasing quickly. Proteomics readings beside with glycan’s make large volumes of raw experimental records and conditional biological outcomes. To accelerate the propagation of these statistics, centralized facts storehouses have been advanced that make the data and results accessible to proteomics researchers and biologists alike. Experimental analysis of proteomics data repositories concentrates totally on freely-available, centralized data properties that disseminate or store experimental mass spectrometry data and results Stereochemistry, Regiochemistry Glycomimetics Chemistry, Chemical Biology Probes.

Session 3:  Glycoimmunology

There are three crucial investigation themes being examined by the Glycoimmunology group: carbohydrate immunochemistry and vaccine design, carbohydrate-based inhibitor synthesis, and carbohydrate immunology. Particular projects concentrates on immune directing of cancer cells via the bioengineering of their surface sialic acid; the controller of cancer metastasis via the operation and targeting of tumor external carbohydrate; physical and immunochemical mapping of defensive salivated epitopes and carbohydrate-based disease altering methods for Several Sclerosis mTransfusion medicine Glycomedicine Cancer associated coagulopathies.

Session 4:  Glycoinformatics

Presently Glycoinformatics is a new branch of bioinformatics that deals with the education of carbohydrates. It generally contains database, software, and algorithm progress for the study of carbohydrate structures, glycoconjugates, enzymatic carbohydrate creation and degradation, as well as carbohydrate collaborations. Original practice of the duration does not currently include the treatment of carbohydrates from the more well-known nutritive aspect 3D structure determination Protein engineering Protein folding Protein Modeling Homology modelling.

Session 5: Glycolipids and Glycopeptide

Glycopeptides are principally peptides that comprise carbohydrate moieties normally glycan’s which are covalently attached to the side chains of the amino acid residues that constitute the peptide. These comprise a course of drugs of microbial origin that are collected of glycosylated cyclic or polycyclic non ribosomal peptides Protein folding Protein profiling G-protein-coupled receptorm Expression proteomics Molecular and cellular proteomics.

Session 6: Glyconeurobiology

Carbohydrate rich molecules containing glycolipids, glycoproteins, and proteoglycans in the nervous system have main roles during progress, regeneration and synaptic plasticity. The structural variety of the carbohydrate moieties renders them ideally suited as stage-specific biomarkers for numerous cell types leading to mediate interactions amongst recognition molecules, thereby contributing to the development of a composite molecular framework at the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix of the cell. The excellent structural diversity of glycan chains and associated moieties allows for immense progressive opportunities that can leads to cell interactions alongside with cell matrix interactions Neurological disorders Neurogenetics Neurosurgery Neuropathology Neurotoxicology.

Session 7: Glycopathology

Carbohydrates are fundamentally considered as main bases of structural materials and energy for living creatures. Modern investigation’s in this zone has concentrated mostly on modest basic sugars and homopolysaccharides such as, starch, cellulose, glycogen, and chitin. During the last few decades, the academics have lifted their attention on composite systems like carbohydrates, especially proteoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins which are together mentioned to as glycoconjugates that displays the prospective of recognition markers in the biological system which also relates to other biomedical and clinical fields. The roles of glycans and glycoconjgates in cancer have been emphasizes, because a small modifications in glycosylation can tremendously regulate the complete pathway and mechanisms of cancer, which indicates to an indication as a biomarker growth leading to several therapeutics development in cancer research Cancer epidemiology Cancer metastasis Cancer biomarkers Tumorigenesis Cancer therapeutics .

Session 8: Glycoscience

Glycoscience contributes in three important ways focusing on Understanding of Human health and diseases, searching for alternative sources of energy and innovating new materials. The glycoscience knowledge will be embedded in efforts to address fundamental challenges in health and sustainability. Glycoscience deals with human health because this has been a main focus of efforts in the field of glycoscience and glycomics, mostly in the United States. Actually many scientists automatically think of health when they think of glycans and their functions. Other researchers clearly study  carbohydrates and their uses (e.g., in polymer engineering), the terminology and techniques used by these fields may differ. As a consequence, the scientific community may not immediately think of the entirety of glycan research as part of a unified field of glycoscience. Glycoproteins Glycosylation Therapeutic proteins Microbial Glycobiology Glycoprofiling.

Session 9: Biochemistry

Biochemistry is a sub-disciple of both biology and chemistry it is divided into three fields as Molecular Genetics, Protein biology and Metabolism. From the last ten decades of the 20th Century, biochemistry has three disciplines become successful at explaining living process. Biochemistry concentrates on accepting how biological molecules give rise to the procedures that occur within living cells and between cells, which in shot recounts greatly to the study and understanding of tissues, organs, and organism structure and function Host pathogen interactions Glycan based immunotherapy Glycomimetics Synthesis of glycan antigens Glycoconjugate vaccines.

 Session 10: Proteoglycan and Sialic acid

Proteoglycans are more than 95% carbohydrate by weight. Proteoglycan supports to offer us with the knowledge to the molecule's several chemical compositions. As proteo mentions to protein, while glycan signifies sugar or a group of sugars, so proteoglycan is a long polysaccharide chain covalently committed to a protein. The protein element of proteoglycans is manufactured by ribosomes and mostly translocated into the lumen of the rough endoplasmic reticulum. Sialic acid is a generic term for the N- or O-substituted derivatives of neuraminic acid, a monosaccharide with a nine-carbon backbone and are found widely distributed in animal tissues and to a lesser level in some additional organisms, ranging from fungi, plants, yeasts and bacteria, mostly in glycoproteins and gangliosides Protein engineering Protein Modeling Homology modelling.
