Transforming Glycoscience: A Roadmap for the Future.


National Research Council (US) Committee on Assessing the Importance and Impact of Glycomics and Glycosciences.


Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); 2012.
The National Academies Collection: Reports funded by National Institutes of Health.


In order to realize the potential of glycoscience and glycomics to build on genomics and proteomics and forge major new roads of discovery, the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences will convene an ad hoc committee to: Conduct an in-depth analysis of the current state of research in glycoscience and glycomics in the U.S.; Compare current U.S. and international research efforts in glycoscience; Discuss key challenges to the growth and development of the field of glycoscience and glycomics; Develop a roadmap with concrete research goals to significantly advance glycoscience and glycomics in the U.S., including the identification of metrics that may be used to help assess efforts to achieve these goals and objectives; and Articulate a unified vision for the field of glycoscience and glycomics.
