Synthesis Services offers on-demand glycan synthesis using currently available automated technology.


Characterization Services offer unique and expert characterization and analyses of polymer structure, interactions, and properties of glycomaterials.


Modeling Services offer online atomistic modeling of carbohydrate 3D structures and provide input files for molecular dynamics simulations.


About GlycoMIP Facilities

GlycoMIP’s national user facility is housed at Virginia Tech’s Fralin Life Sciences Institute in Blacksburg, VA and at the University of Georgia’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center in Athens, Georgia.
