Analytical Services

We provide analytical services in isolation and structure characterization of all glycoconjugates, including plant and microbial polysaccharides, glycoproteins (glycomics and glycoproteomics), glycosaminoglycans, glycolipids and many others.

We have state-of-the-art, high-end LC, CE, MS, and NMR instruments.

Services are offered to academia, government, and industry

CarboSource Services

Provides nucleotide-sugar substrates for plant cell wall biosynthesis studies and monoclonal antibodies that recognize diverse plant cell wall components. Contact Jarod Glatz at 706-542-4499 (

Mass spectrometry/collaborations

The CCRC mass spectrometry facility, under the direction of Dr. Parastoo Azadi, provides state-of-the-art techniques to characterize proteins and protein post-translational modifications Contact Dr. Parastoo Azadi: 706-583-0629 (

Service Synthesis Laboratory

Provides custom syntheses of oligosaccharides, glycoconjugates, and related compounds using the latest synthetic technologies. Contact Dr. Geert-Jan Boons: 706-542-9161 (

NMR spectroscopy/collaborations

The CCRC NMR spectroscopy facility, under the direction of Professor James H. Prestegard, is used to determine molecular structures of carbohydrates and proteins. Contact Dr. John Glushka: 706-542-4483 (

Molecular modeling/collaborations

The molecular modeling computational simulations use the all-atom AMBER force field for proteins and nucleic acids and a novel set of parameters (GLYCAM) developed by Dr. Rob Woods' group for use with carbohydrates. Contact Dr. Rob Woods: 706-542-4454 (

Biomolecular Interaction Laboratory/collaborations

The Biomolecular Interaction Laboratory at the CCRC provides campus researchers surface plasmon resonance (SPR) for real-time monitoring of macromolecular interactions without the need for labels via the Biacore optical biosensor. Biacore instruments are available on collaboration or a fee-for-service basis to researchers at the University of Georgia as well as researchers from other institutions or companies.
