Current Literature in Glycobiology
Current Literature in Glycobiology (CMM 246/MED 246/BIOM246) is a one credit elective that provides a weekly forum for discussing current literature in glycobiology research in a traditional journal club format. Topics include glycan chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology and molecular biology in animals, plants, and microbes as well as medical aspects of glycobiology. 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. All members of the Glycobiology Research and Training Center are welcome to present or participate.
The group will convene at 12:00 noon on Fridays in the 4th floor conference room in the new Biomedical Research Facility (Brown Bag). Drs. Lars Bode, Jeff Esko, Pascal Gagneux and Ajit Varki are the regular faculty instructors. In the first session, Dr. Bode discusses the overall organization of the course, give recommendations for making optimal presentations, and set up a presentation schedule. Regular presentations will start the following week. A final listing of participants will be posted via e-mail as soon as the list is compiled.
If you are intending to participate and/or would like to receive an e-mail copy of the abstract of the paper that will be presented each week, please notify Steve Portillo via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
