Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes for Glycan Conversions - Gordon Research Conference

This event takes place: July 21 – 26, 2019

The 2019 Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes for Glycan Conversions GRC, will present leading-edge research on this growing class of enzymes, which find applications in both industrial biotechnology and health sectors.

Topics: enzymes and enzyme systems that transform land and aquatic polysaccharides via hydrolytic and oxidative mechanisms, with particular emphasis on protein-protein and protein-substrate interactions that influence bioconversion efficiency. Frontline research topics will cover latest insights into plant cell wall architecture that impact CAZyme action, enzyme cascades and multi-enzyme complexes from diverse natural habitats, emerging tools to accelerate CAZyme discovery and development, and novel applications of CAZymes in bio-based materials.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 23, 2019.

Financial assistance is available for qualified applicants through the GRC Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowship Program.
