Glycomics Using Microarrays

lectin microarray technology for glycomic analysis.

Glycomics, is the high-throughput analysis of carbohydrates, can now reach the level of ease of genomics and proteomics. Led by Dr. Laura Mahal, an efficient strategy for the systematic creation of recombinant lectins for use in microarray technology has been developed. Recombinant lectin microarrays are able to distinguish glycopatterns for both proteins and cell samples. This work opens the door to the establishment of a vast set of defined lectins via high-throughout approaches, advancing lectin microarray technology for glycomic analysis.
