Glycoproteomics Workshop

Human Glycoproteomics Initiative Workshop @Glyco26

Date: Aug 30, 2023
Time: 13:30 - 15:30
Structure: Invited talks and Panel Discussions.

Coordinated by:
Morten Andersen, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
Daniel Kolarich, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia
KH Khoo, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan

Workshop Description:

This Workshop, organized by the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) Human
Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI) (,
will focus on introducing the current state-of-the-art computational tools available to analyse
LC-MS/MS datasets of glycopeptide mixtures. It will introduce challenges and opportunities in
the field and highlight lessons learned from a recently completed community evaluation of
glycoproteomics informatics solutions conducted through the HGI. The scope, aims and emphasis
of a second HGI community study will also be introduced. This will be extended to cover several
key software and applications thereof. Participants are encouraged to share their user
experiences, preferences, and expectations.

Benefits of the Workshop to Glyco26 Symposium attendees: 
We anticipate that this Workshop will benefit a considerable proportion of the Glyco26 attendees
by offering a rare opportunity to learn from and engage with leading scientists within the
glycoproteomics community. Attendees will obtain valuable insights into the latest informatics
and technology developments in the emerging area of glycoproteomics. Attendees may identify
avenues of using glycoproteomics within their own research portfolio possibly through
collaborations with experts in the field. The focused discussions on technical and informatics
challenges remaining to be solved will benefit attendees by painting a realistic picture of the
current capabilities and pitfalls of glycoproteomics, useful for scientists both within and outside
glycoproteome research community.
