Glyco Immunology

Glycomics the scientific attempt to characterize and study carbohydrates, is a rapidly emerging branch of science, for which informatics is just beginning. Glycomics requires sophisticated algorithmic approaches. Several algorithms and models have been developed for glycobiology research in the past several years. The development and use of informatics tools and databases for glycobiology and glycomics research has increased considerably in recent years. However, the general development in this field can still be considered as being in its infancy when compared to the genomics and proteomics areas. In terms of bioinformatics in glycobiology, there are several paths of research that are currently in progress. The development of algorithms and software tools for interpretation of glycans to reliably support the characterization of glycan structures for high-throughput applications is the most immediate demand of the glycomics community.

Glycans decorate nearly all proteins in the body, respond rapidly and dramatically to inflammatory cues, and have been centrally implicated in regulating the immune response. With the advent of new technologies, and a great interest in the intersection of glycobiology and immunology, significant advances are now being realized in our understanding of how glycosylation may both allow pathogens to subvert the immune system but also represent exciting new targets for the immune system to target for enhanced protection from infection. Thus glycan-based therapeutics can be harnessed for autoimmune, cancer, infectious diseases and HIV vaccine application.
