HPLC 2017 Topic Preview: Advances in Glycomics in Biology and Medicine

This is the fifth article in a series exploring current topics in separation science that will be addressed at the HPLC 2017 conference in Prague, Czech Republic, from 18–22 June.

Advances in Glycomics in Biology and Medicine

The importance of glycosylated structures in modern biology and medicine has been beyond dispute for many years, but there are still gaps in biochemical understanding. The current realization that virtually all major human diseases have been associated with glycosylation changes demands in-depth structural studies of these highly complex glycobiomolecules. Glycoscience with its many directions and a broad scope in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems is currently securing its place at the centre stage of modern biological research.
