Lectin attachment on surfaces by bioconjugation at non-canonical amino acids

Dajana Kolanovic


This research involves the site-selective functionalisation of lectins with non-canonical amino acids containing reactive handles for their directed attachment to solid surfaces. The work will include state-of-the-art molecular biology, the expansion of the genetic code, and chemical protein modification.
