Glycans can be initiate attached to proteins as in glycoproteins and proteoglycans. In general, they are found on the external surface of cells. O- and N-linked glycans are right collective in eukaryotes but may similarly found, although less commonly, in prokaryotes. Glycan classifications cannot be well-defined by a simple linear one-letter code as every duplet of monosaccharide’s can be associate in various ways and tributary structures can be designed. Few of the bioinformatics algorithms established for genomics or proteomics can be straightly adapted for glycomics. The progress of algorithms, which allow a rapid, automatic interpretation of mass spectra to recognise glycan structures, is at this time the most active field of research.
