The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to participate in the 9th Biennial Meeting on Microbial Carbohydrates (BMMC), to be held from 7th to 9th September 2020 at the Aula Magna Partenope (Via Partenope 36, Napoli, Italy).
In line with the tradition of this meeting, the BMMC topics explore the many areas of microbial carbohydrates, spanning from structural chemistry, biochemistry, synthesis, biosynthesis, activity and protein-carbohydrate interactions. As for the term ?microbial?, it takes the widest sense of the word, indeed it is comprehensive of bacteria, viruses, archaea and microalgae, and whatever organism is in the micron range.
Other aspects complete this rich portfolio by reporting the use of state of art techniques in the study of these molecules or the development of computational tools and databases to support the carbohydrate community.
The main topics of the meeting are:
-Glycans and Microbes in the gut
-Glycans in Extremophiles
-Bacterial Glycan Synthesis
-Polysaccharides Structural chemistry
-Glycan Biosynthesis and Recognition
-Glycans in bacterium/host interactions
