Workshops

To complement the main program of Glyco26, two workshops will be organized to introduce the latest developments in i) glyco-related bioinformatics and databases and their integration; and ii) glycoproteomic data analysis. Both workshops are integral parts of the program and will run in parallel with other scientific sessions. No additional registration is required. 

Glycoinformatics - coordinated by Kiyoko Aoki-Kinoshita

The Glycoinformatics workshop will be held in an interactive manner, after some short presentations by software and database developers. The content will cover basic glycan drawing tools/software, glycan format converters, followed by more in-depth analytical tools including GlycoMaple and single-cell analysis tools. Users can also bring their own data, such as from mass spectrometry analysis, to test the latest updates to GlycoWorkbench, as well as to set up their upload to GlycoPOST and UniCarb-DR, and other repositories.

Glycoproteomics - coordinated by Morten Thaysen-Andersen

The Glycoproteomics workshop will focus on introducing the current state-of-the-art in computational tools available to analyze the generated LC-MS/MS datasets. It will introduce the main lessons learned from a recently completed community evaluation of glycoproteomics informatics solutions conducted through the HUPO Human Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI). This will be extended to cover several subsequently available new software, with an interactive discussion on their differing search strategies and benchmark performances. Participants are encouraged to share their user experiences and preferences. The scope, aims and emphasis of a second HGI community study will also be introduced. 

** Speakers for both workshops will be posted on "Speakers/Workshops" as they become available.
