Welcome to the Virtual Glycome

The glycome constitutes the entire complement of free carbohydrates and glycoconjugates expressed in cells or tissue. 'Systems Glycobiology' is an emerging discipline that aims to quantitatively describe and analyze the glycome. 

This website is focused on presenting selected computational tools and experimental resources that can be used to better understand the processes regulating cellular glycosylation at multiple levels.

A pictoral representation of the relationship between the different computational tools is provided in the schematic to the right
