Techniques for Characterization of Complex Carbohydrates 
Laboratory Courses

Three courses will be offered at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center
(CCRC) of the University of Georgia.  

Course 1 (June 10-14, 1996), "Separation and Characterization of
Glycoprotein Oligosaccharides", is intended for scientists with little
experience in carbohydrate analysis.  Course 2 (June 17-21, 1996),
"Structural Analysis of Oligosaccharides", is intended for scientists with
some experience with glycoconjugates or for those who have completed the
first course, and will focus on techniques of composition and linkage
analysis.  Experience with basic biochemical techniques is a prerequisite
for participation in the courses.  Course 3 (August 19-23, 1996)  "MS and
MS/MS Analysis of Glycoconjugates" is intended for scientists with an
interest in mass spectrometry and some experience with glycoconjugates. 
Experience with MS is beneficial but is not required.  

All courses will consist of hands-on laboratory work, demonstrations and
lectures; lab manual including selected analytical techniques and
references will be provided.  Each course is limited to 10 participants.
The cost of registration (including lunch) per course is $500 for
individuals from non-profit institutions, $1,100 for others.  Registration
does not include lodging and travel expenses.

The courses are supported jointly by the Department of Energy Plant and
Microbial Carbohydrate Center, and the NIH Biomedical Carbohydrate
Resource Center of the CCRC.  For further information or to apply for the
