Computational Chemistry and Bioinformatics Research Core

Dr. Sushil Mishra at work in CCBRC

Dr. Sushil Mishra

The Computational Chemistry and Bioinformatics Research Core (CCBRC) provides computations of many kinds to support research on multiple glycoscience topics.  Many aspects of glycoscience are amenable to, and can benefit from, computational investigation.  Along with supporting researchers in identifying computational approaches to assist them in their research, CCBRC will provide training in computational methods for glycoscience.  These training sessions will enable researchers to increase their skills portfolio.   

What kinds of calculations are covered?

Structures and properties of small molecules containing sugar moieties

Structures and properties of glycoconjugates such as glycoproteins

Protein-ligand interactions in which either the protein or ligand or both contain glyco groups

Bioinformatics analysis of big data such as the outputs of mass spectrometry of glycoconjugate mixtures

Other bioinformatics, such as for pathway analysis of glycosylation
