Back to Current Year

Publications are presented in an informal discussion setting to students, post-docs and faculty. Typcially, there are 20-25 weekly attendees. Links to PubMed for each article is provided below. Topics include glycan chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology and molecular biology in animals, plants and microbes as well as medical aspects of glycobiology. Registration for the course (1 credit per quarter) is done through the registrar's office.

Faculty Instructors: Drs. Lars Bode, Jeffrey Esko, Ajit Varki, & Pascal Gagneux
