New equipment is being ordered and installed, with some services available beginning April 2021.


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



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



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