GAG Computational Group

GAG Computational Group was established in 2017 when Sergey Samsonov started his independent research within the grant project Computational approaches to study protein-glycosaminoglycan interactions

In our group, at the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Gdańsk, we apply computational tools to analyze properties of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), negatively charged sulfated periodic polysaccharides, and develop new approaches to study the GAG-containing biomolecular systems more effectively. Our work advances the basic understanding of these particularly challenging biologically relevant molecules required for developing novel GAG-mediated tissue regeneration strategies.
