Glycan/lectin interactions drive a wide range of recognition and signal transduction processes within nature. However, their measurement is complicated or limited by the analytical tools available. Most technologies require fluorescently labelled proteins (e.g. microarrays) or expensive infrastructure (such as surface plasmon resonance). This also limits(More)
The development of new analytical tools as point-of-care biosensors is crucial to combat the spread of infectious diseases, especially in the context of drug-resistant organisms, or to detect biological warfare agents. Glycan/lectin interactions drive a wide range of recognition and signal transduction processes within nature and are often the first site of(More)

T hree large plant molecular biology institutes of the Upper Rhine Region, those of Ciba Geigy's Friedrich Miescher Institut at Basel, the Botanisches Institut of the University at Freiburg, as well as the plant molecular biology institute of the French research organisation CNRS at Strasbourg, met in Freiburg on 11 November 1989 to present their research(More)
Antibiotic resistance is a global health concern meaning there is an urgent need for new treatments and diagnostics. Here glycosylated surfaces are used to profile the binding patterns of a range of Gram-negative, Gram-positive and mycobacteria. This enables the creation of 'barcodes' to enable identification and discrimination between the strains, which(More)
