Members of the Glycobiology Research Community, and other interested
The 1998 Society for Glycobiology meeting program has been updated to
incorporate two additional lectures. These include the first ever
presentation of an X-ray crystal structure of a mammalian
glycosyltransferase, and a overview of the current state of the art in
DNA and protein sequence database searching and analysis. The titles of
these two presentations, and the names of the speakers, are shown below.
"Crystal Structure of the Bovine beta4Gal-T1 Catalytic Domain"
By Louis N Gastinel (AFMB, CNRS-UPR 9039, Marseille, France)
"Closing the gap between sequence and function: the frontier of
computational biology and functional genomics"
By Mark S. Boguski (Senior Investigator,Computational Biology Branch,
National Center for Biotechnology Information,National Library of
Medicine, National Institutes of Health)
All abstracts submitted to the meeting are now available and searchable
on-line on the meeting Web page, http://www.glycobiology.org/
The 1998 Society for Glycobiology meeting Advance Registration process
will be open until October 9. On site registration will be available at
