Welcome to the GastricGlycoExplorer website

It is now widely recognized that the human genome (first published in 2001) cannot explain the complexity of the human organism. Life science has to go beyond traditional genomics and proteomics to understand the mechanisms of disease and how humans interact with their environment.
The increased understanding of posttranslational modifications (e.g. glycosylation) has led to adopting the “one gene-many functions” concept to explain some of this deficit. Inspired by proteomics, glycomic research has now adopted mature techniques for global investigation of glycosylation and glycosylation sites

The overall objective of the project is to establish a platform for systems biology in glycoresearch utilizing multidisciplinary/inter-sectorial state-of-the-art techniques and the developmental capacity applied to gastric cancer.
The research outcomes can be classified into unique areas including i/ Development of glycoprototypes of functional recombinant glycoproteins as potential drug targets (industrial), ii/ Development of novel analytical techniques with potential to transfer into industrial applications and glycodiagnostics,and iii/ Development of proof of concept for glycobioinformatics
