In this thesis, glycan nodes, the basic subunits of complex biological sugars, were studied to determine the reproducibility of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) based methylation analysis of whole blood plasma

In this thesis, glycan nodes, the basic subunits of complex biological sugars, were studied to determine the reproducibility of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) based methylation analysis of whole blood plasma by normalization using an internal standard of heavy permethylated glycans. Glycans are complex biological sugars that have a variety of applications in the human body and will display aberrant compositions when produced by cancerous cells. Thus an assay to determine their composition can be used as a diagnostic tool.
