Glycomics and glycoproteomics are emerging fields with respect to post-translational modification. Exceptional development of modern experimental techniques, such as mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, and knockout mice enables one to accumulate a great deal of information related to carbohydrate structure and functions. On the other hand, bioinformatics approaches to carbohydrate research have been significantly lagging. One of the reasons has been the lack of data, due to their structural complexity. In recent years, construction of a database with respect to carbohydrates and development of related bioinformatics tools have attracted increasing attention in various biological research areas such as glycobiology and drug discovery.
