Glycomics Institute of Alberta

Educational Resources

GIA aims to integrate the study of glycomics into relevant disciplines in high school, undergraduate and graduate education. In addition to developing educational resources stratified by level, there are several internship opportunities available to help bring about the next generation of glycoscientists.

GlycoGang members N-Acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) and N-Acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) reading to Fucose (Fuc).
