11th Danish Conference on Biotechnology and Molecular Biology
This year we will be focusing on Glycobiology and Carbohydrate Biotechnology.
Carbohydrates are essential for life of all living cells. With functional roles in biological processes and interactions they are of significant importance to human health and nutrition, and to symbiotic activity in the digestion system. Glycans play major roles for the pharmacokinetic properties of therapeutic glycoproteins. Recent pharmaceutical efforts are aimed at producing recombinant glycoproteins with simple and more homogeneous glycan structures in order to avoid immunogenicity and improve uptake and circulatory half-life. The present conference will focus on the latest developments in glycobiology and glycomics in relation to pharma, nutrition and analytical methods:
Glycan biosynthetic pathways
Glyco-engineering of production cell lines
Glycosylation of therapeutic proteins
Health and pharma
Carbohydrates in relation to synbiotics and nutrition
Human milk oligosaccharides
Synbiotics: prebiotics and probiotics
Microbial carbohydrate transporters and metabolomics
Analysis methods and technology
The conference includes a poster session as well as a commercial exhibition of equipment, consumables and services to Danish biotechnology.
The conference is organised in collaboration with Danish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Danish Biotechnological Society (DBS) is a scientific society established in 2006 in collaboration between Danish Biotechnology Forum and The Danish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. DBS is organised as part of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA Biotechnology. The purpose of DBS is to facilitate networking within the field of biotechnology in Denmark, creating links between universities, research institutions, hospitals and companies. DBS represents professionals working with biotechnology and seeks to promote and communicate important issues on biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology to the public. DBS organises scientific conferences and meetings on biotechnology.
