Techniques for Characterization of Complex Carbohydrates

Two courses will be offered in the summer of 2000 at the Complex
Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) of The University of Georgia: 
Course 1, Analytical Techniques for Carbohydrate Structure Determination 
(June 5-9) and Course 2, Separation and Characterization of Glycoconjugate
Oligosaccharides (July 31 - August 4).

Each course will feature a guest lecture on a current research topic in
carbohydrate science.  The speakers this year are Dr. Christian Raetz,
Duke University, for Course 1, and Dr. Gerald Hart, The Johns Hopkins
University, for Course 2.  The courses consist of hands-on laboratory
work, lectures, and demonstrations.  Also included are modules on using
mass spectrometry and/or NMR for analysis of glycoconjugates.  A
laboratory manual incorporating selected analytical techniques and
references will be provided.  More details can be seen at the CCRC web
site (http://www.ccrc.uga.edu/web/training/trainingframe.html).
