On April 27, the New York Academy of Sciences will host the Fifth Annual Advances in Biomolecular Engineering Symposium, focusing on the design of oligosaccharides and proteins for materials and energy applications.
Specifically, the symposium will focus on the following areas: (1) synthetic and biosynthetic methods to prepare oligosaccharides, and the role of these macromolecules in materials science and glycobiology, (2) rational design and self-assembly of periodically sequenced polypeptides and proteins, and (3) physical and electronic properties of bio-inspired molecules.
