Carbohydrate Bioengineering is recognized today as a pillar of biotechnology and biological engineering. It offers major assets to face many of our modern life challenges, promote innovative medical treatments or elaborate functional food, biopharmaceuticals, active cosmetics, biomaterials, to name just a few. In particular, research in glycobiology, multi-omic data integration, structure/function relationships, enzyme engineering, biocatalysis, biophysics and process development are key drivers to expand opportunities in this field. More than ever, knowledge between carbohydrate players must be shared and crossing and bridging the disciplinary boundaries are essential to open new horizons of developments for the benefit of all. 

The following topics will be covered: 

  • Carbohydrate structure & complex carbohydrate-based matrices 
  • Polysaccharide metabolism & carbohydrate transport
  • Omics and CAZyme discovery
  • Mechanisms, structure-function relationships and dynamics of CAZymes
  • CAZyme engineering and computer-assisted design
  • Enzymes for carbohydrate synthesis and modification
  • Auxiliary activities enzymes & carbohydrate esterases
  • Glycobiotechnologies
