Glycoproteomics Workshop

Human Glycoproteomics Initiative Workshop @Glyco26
Date: Aug 30, 2023
Time: 9:00 - 11:00 am (with possibility of extending it further to an additional afternoon hands-on session)
Structure: Invited talks + panel discussions.
Registration included in the registration for Glyco26

Workshop Description:

This Workshop organized by the HUPO Human Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI, will focus on introducing the current state-of-the-art in 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 Congress attendees: 
We anticipate that this Workshop will benefit a considerable proportion of the Glyco26 congress 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.
