One credit elective that provides a weekly forum for discussing current literature in glycobiology research in a traditional journal club format.

Typically, 20-30 students, post-docs, and faculty attend the meeting. Registration is done through the registrar's office. Because of limitations on the number of people that the room can accommodate, the sessions will be restricted to students who register for the class and those other individuals who are willing to take a turn in presenting a paper.
