2nd AGS

2nd Australasian Glycoscience Symposium (2nd AGS)

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I warmly welcome you to the 2nd Australasian Glycoscience Symposium (2nd AGS) held over three full days in conjunction with the 18th World HUPO Congress, Adelaide, South Australia. Coordinating the 2nd AGS with the 18th World HUPO Congress provides an exciting opportunity to further strengthen the bridge between the Glycosciences and Proteome research. The meeting will host a fantastic line-up of international speakers (see below) and showcase talent in the region by covering a variety of Glycoscientific topics in including:

Saturday 14th September: Glycoanalytics and Glycoinformatics (see 2nd AGS Final Program here) Sponsored by Protein Metrics

Registration: $50, see registration link here (strictly limited capacity)

Time & Venue: Saturday 14th September, 8:30 am- 5:00 pm, HB Building (L8), UniSA, North Terrace, Adelaide, Australia

Monday 16th- Tuesday 17th September: Glycochemistry, Glycoimmunology, Clinical Glycobiology, Analytical Glycobiology, Host-Pathogen Glycobiology, and Plant Glycoscience (with HUPO, see Preliminary Program here)
