Centre de recherches sur les macromolécules végétales
Created in 1966 under the supervision of CNRS, the Centre de Recherches sur les Macromolecules Vegetales (CERMAV) is a fundamental research center devoted to Glycosciences, with strong and multidisciplinary expertise that spans from chemistry, physical-chemistry, biology to material sciences. It covers all the areas related to carbohydrates, their in vivo and in vitro synthesis, their characterization, and their functions and applications. Specifically, the main research area of CERMAV is devoted to the studies of saccharidic molecules: sugars, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, glycoproteins and glycomaterials.

Biomass in the Bioeconomy
In this book, Serge Pérez and his co-authors discuss the role of biomass in the bioeconomy and focus on the European Union and the United States, the first two regions to develop a bioeconomy strategy with a clear effect on the bioeconomy developments in the rest of the world. Important developments in other areas of the world are discussed. Click on the title for more information.
Extending Janus lectins architecture: Characterization and application to protocells
In this publication of Anne Imberty and Simona Notova, in collaboration with the University of Freiburg, Glycodiag, Malvern Instruments and Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, the authors show a concept of chimerical lectins, with an increased valence and additional specificity. Construction is specific to fucose and at-galactose and its unique protein architecture makes it possible to link these simultaneous ligands. Click on the title for more information.
