SCILS 2018: Focus Topic - Bioinformatics
The focus of Dr Niclas Karlsson’s research group is the role of glycosylation for sustained human health. Patient samples are analysed in order to identify pathological alteration of the glycosylation. The broad spectrum of investigated diseases mimics the omnipresence of glycans in biological interfaces, including the glycocalyx on cell membranes, on mucosal surfaces that protects gastrointestinal, pulmonary and reproductive tracts and the joints in the muscoskeletal system.
