13th European Training Course on Carbohydrates - April 13-17, 2014

addition : 21 janvier 2014.

13th European Training Course on Carbohydrates (Summer Course in Glycosciences) in Wageningen, The Netherlands, April 13-17, 2014.

This broad course in glycosciences combines general introductions in the field of polysaccharides and glycoproteins with in-depth parallel sessions. This gives participants the possibility to focus on specific interests without losing a broad education. The course is at graduate level. The course may be valuable for those working in research and industry that are willing to refresh their knowledge within the broad field of carbohydrates and for graduate students working on a PhD related to carbohydrate chemistry, biochemistry, biology, chemical technology or food science. All participants will be encouraged to introduce themselves and their work by presenting a poster during the course.

5th Symposium on the α-Amylase Family - 2013/Oct/20-24

addition : 23 mai 2013.

5th Symposium on the α-Amylase Family (ALAMY_5), at the Smolenice Castle, Slovakia, from October 20 to 34, 2013.

The scientific program will be focused on various aspects of the main alpha-amylase enzyme clan GH-H (i.e. families GH13, GH70 and GH77) as well as of the smaller alpha-amylase family GH57, and even GH119. The topics covered are as follows : (i) structure/function relationships ; (ii) novel GH13 subfamilies ; (iii) starch and glycogen binding domain as CBM families ; (iv) industrial aspects ; (v) human health and gut microflora. The “cousin” family GH31 will also be included. Within the sessions the findings on new primary and tertiary structures, specificity and evolution, protein engineering, catalytic and binding mechanisms, and stability and stabilization are expected to be presented.
