Abstract

The recent development and applications of tree-based informatics on glycans have accelerated the biological analysis on glycans, particularly from structural viewpoints. We review three major aspects of recent informatics innovations on glycan structures: maturity of well-organized databases on glycan structures linking with other biological information, implementation of glycan structure matching algorithms and extensive development of methods for mining frequent patterns from glycan structures.
