Most of my work is the development of IT methods for glycobiological research. It includes supervision, development and maintenance of a glyco database, development of methods for automated correlation between carbohydrate structure and NMR spectra, elucidation of the primary structure of natural carbohydrates and statistical analysis of glycomes in taxa. The most natural objects are bacterial O-antigens that are linear or branched polysaccharides and their derivatives with repeating units of 3-8 monomeric residues. My PhD thesis (2001) was dedicated to automated glycopolymer NMR data analysis; ScD thesis (habilitation, 2019) was dedicated to informatization of glycobiology as a whole.
The major workplaces have been NMR center and Lab of carbohydrate chemistry of Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry (Russia, Moscow), Borstel ForschungsZentrum (Borstel, Germany), Deutsche KrebsForschungsZentrum (Heidelberg, Germany).
