Tackling the problem of carbohydrate recognition is a subject of current interest. Our strategies in this regard include development of new methods for the synthesis of saccharides and sugar arrays for screening, design of D-peptides to target bacterial cell-surface sugars, preparation of mechanism-based inhibitors of the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of saccharides and the synthesis of aminoglycoside mimetics to target RNA.
