Carbohydrate Bioengineering is recognized today as a pillar of biotechnology and biological engineering. It offers major assets to face many of our modern life challenges, promote innovative medical treatments or elaborate functional food, biopharmaceuticals, active cosmetics, biomaterials, to name just a few.
In particular, researches in glycobiology, multi-omic data integration, structure/function relationships, enzyme engineering, biocatalysis, biophysics and process development are key drivers to expand opportunities in this field. More than ever, knowledge between carbohydrate players must be shared and crossing and bridging the disciplinary boundaries are essential to open new horizons of developments for the benefit of all. This will be the objective of CBM14.
In keeping with the previous CBMs, the conference will bring together glycoscientists coming from all over the world to share their latest findings and most exciting achievements in a friendly and warm atmosphere. Experts from research institutions or private companies will open each session, which will be followed by presentations selected from submitted abstracts.
