The National Node for Glycomics and Glycoproteomics – University of Gothenburg, and lipidomics – Chalmers university of technology

This joined effort by the Gothenburg Proteomics Core Facility (PCF) and leading glycobiology scientists at University of Gothenburg will strive to meet the national demand for access to expertise and instrumentation for advanced glycosylation analysis.

The node is formed within the Proteomics core facility, where experts with extensive background in glycobiology and advanced mass spectrometry (MS) work side-by-side with bioinformaticians in a scientific environment with access to the latest MS technologies Initially our focus is to set up the latest MS methodologies driven from the glycobiology research groups to gain access for the wider scientific community. Our concept is open- access and full scientific support to researchers and our key experts will aid national projects in planning, method development, analysis and data evaluation.
