Press release ¤ Information de presse
The 7th Carbohydrate Bioengineering Meeting will take place from 22 to 25 April 2007 in Braunschweig, Germany. The CBM 7 will provide a comprehensive overview of the field of carbohydrate bioengineering - from fundamental research topics to industrial applications. Experts from the international scientific community are invited to present their latest research achievements and progress, inspiring those working in the field. Abstracts should be submitted by file upload at the website: www.dechema.de/CBM7 by 29 September 2006.
The field of carbohydrate research derives its dynamic character from its diversity, its activities ranging from structural material to substrates for all living species to highly differentiated and specific signal functions. Today the biological, medical and industrial relevance of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates is undisputed.
The CBM series, an initiative that was launched in Elsinor (Denmark) in 1995, has consolidated its position in the rapidly growing area of glycosciences as a biennial interdisciplinary meeting for scientists from academia and industry. Like its predecessors in Elsinor, La Rochelle, Newcastle, Stockholm, Groningen and Barcelona, CBM 7 in Braunschweig aims at stimulating high quality research in basic and applied aspects of carbohydrate bioengineering by the exchange of ideas and experience and a lively debate on state-of-the-art knowledge.
The tremendous structural diversity is a challenge to research since it addresses the analysis and synthesis of complex carbohydrate structures and their functions, including enzyme and whole-cell biocatalyst development, design and application, as well as structure-function relationships of carbohydrate-active enzymes.
