High resolution NMR spectroscopy and computer molecular modeling are used to explore the conformation and dynamics of complex carbohydrates of the cell surface. Techniques such as scalar and dipolar coupling and nuclear Overhauser effects are applied to study glycoprotein oligosaccharides and the antigenic polysaccharides of pathogenic bacteria.
