Guest Editors: Professor Vijai Kumar Gupta, Scotland's Rural College, UK; Professor Ashok Pandey, CSIR-Indian Institute of Toxicology Research.
The Editor-in-Chief of Microbial Cell Factories, Prof Grzegorz Wegrzyn and the guest editors present a special collection with a thematic scheme: ‘Microbial Glycobiotechnology’.
The collection features contributions from the BRSI2020 conference and was also open to all.
Research and technologies involving carbohydrates to carbohydrate-based materials and the conversion of carbohydrates for renewable energy, agri and health fall under the umbrella of glycobiotechnology. Microbial glycobiotechnology refers to sustainable bioprocesses for the bioconversion of carbohydrates through microbial enzymes and microbial technologies, and the generation of tailor-made carbohydrate bioproducts/polymers for variety of novel applications in, bioenergy and fuels, biomaterials, in food and nutrition, and pharmaceuticals.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Glycan biosynthesis
- Modification of complex carbohydrates and their corresponding glycoconjugates including glycans, glycoproteins, glycolipids’
- Biological functions of glycoconjugates and glycolipids
This collection is now closed to new submissions.
