Abstract:

Synthetic glycoconjugates are essential biological probes. This seminar will focus on ongoing investigations on the synthesis of complex glycans and their use in understanding the assembly and function of glycans in biology. Emphasis will be on glycans of microbial origin, including those from mycobacteria.
