    ...deals with glycobiology and protein biochemistry


Major research topics at the institute of biochemistry are glycobiology (glycoprotein analysis - Altmann, glycobiology of invertebrates - Staudacher, molecular glycobiology - Wilson) and protein biochemistry (Furtmüller, Obinger).

Projects of the glycobiology groups deal with biosynthesis, structure and function of protein-linked glycans. Of particular interest are the roles of such carbohydrates in biomedical applications of glycoproteins and in physiological contexts such as embryogenesis or pathogenesis (glycans of pathogens or as pathogen receptors) or as part of allergens.
