All the scientific disciplines involved in analyzing various molecules and macromolecules containing carbohydrates and complex glycans are integrated into Glycoscience's Glycoscience assembles all of the scientific disciplines involved in the study of various molecules and macromolecules containing carbohydrates and complex glycans. The variety of the most dependable computational methods capable of solving such problems is anchored by the specificity of stereoelectronic effects from quantum chemistry to mesoscale simulation, molecular dynamics and mechanics, and coarse-grained and docking calculations. The Review guides the reader through the detailed case studies of the computational modeling's use. Polysaccharides in solution and solid-state and lipopolysaccharides in membranes are still present in membranes, according to the presentation.

Both these fields are closely related when microbial infection prompts host immune responses and glycan structures are vital in the processes that occur during all such encounters. Microbial glycans mediate host-pathogen interactions by acting as surface receptors or ligands, acting as virulence factors, triggering host immune responses, or playing other roles in the conflict between host and microbe. The use of emerging glycoscience tools and technologies to advance study of glycans and their roles in microbe-host interactions, immune-mediated diseases, and immune cell recognition and function was discussed during the conference.
