The goal of the 5th Warren Workshop will be to highlight the capabilities and limitations that exist in the detection, identification, and quantification of carbohydrate polymers. In light of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry being awarded for Computational Simulations, we will also include a session on computational glycoscience. >>> Read more
Galway is known as Ireland's Cultural Heart and is renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals, celebrations and events. Galway city is a major center for traditional Irish music, which is kept alive in pubs and by street performers. As you wander Galway city's cobble-stoned streets you can feel yourself stepping back in time to medieval Ireland. The surroundings include the spectacular Connemara region to the north, where you are more likely to hear spoken Irish than English.
Each session begins with one plenary talk (25 min. plus 5 min. for questions). Following are short presentations (15 min. and 5 min. for questions). Subsequently the session Chair will summarize the session (5 min. ) and open the discussion (10 min. ). >>> Read more
As conference organizers, Dr. Pauline Rudd and I invite you to the upcoming Warren Workshop V, which will take place in Galway, Ireland, from August 6-9, 2014.
This biennial workshop strives to bring together investigators working on the frontiers of glycan characterization in order to advance the field of glycomics, glycolipidomics, and glycoproteomics. The format of the workshop is designed to facilitate interactions and foster meaningful discussions that will encompass recent technological advances, data analysis, and glycobioinformatics.
The goal of the 5th Warren Workshop will be to highlight the capabilities and limitations that exist in the detection, identification, and quantification of carbohydrate polymers. In light of this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry being awarded for Computational Simulations, we will also include a session on computational glycoscience. The driving force for the Warren Workshop series is the need for detailed structural analysis of glycoconjugates in the context of complex biological systems. The workshop will bring together experts in the discipline to establish workflows for tackling these huge challenges. Invited speakers will briefly summarize specific topics that will be followed by moderated discussions of the subject areas. The workshop will provide participants with cutting-edge approaches and pipelines for glycomic experiments and data management to facilitate accurate and robust analysis. Major topics will include qualitative and quantitative analysis of free glycans and glycoconjugates, data processing, and integration of resulting information with other systems biology approaches. Current and pending initiatives in the area of data standardization and data mining with regard to the discovery of structure-function relationships will be presented.
