Uses Of Glycomics

Journal of Glycomics & Lipidomics involves the glycome which is the entire complement of sugars, whether free or present in more complex molecules, of an organism. An alternative definition is the entirety of carbohydrates in a cell. The glycome may in fact be one of the most complex entities in nature. "Glycomics, analogous to genomics and proteomics, is the systematic study of all glycan structures of a given cell type or organism" and is a subset of glycobiology. "Carbohydrate", "glycan", "saccharide", and "sugar" are generic terms used interchangeably in this context and includes monosaccharides, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, and derivatives of these compounds. Carbohydrates consist of “hydrated carbon”, i.e. [CH2O]n. Monosaccharides are a carbohydrate that cannot be hydrolyzed into a simpler carbohydrate and are the building blocks of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. Oligosaccharides are linear or branched chains of monosaccharides attached to one another via glycosidic linkages. The number of monosaccharide units can vary. Polysaccharides are glycans composed of repeating monosaccharides, generally greater than ten monosaccharide units in length. OMICS online International is one of the leading Open Access Publishers which is publishing 350 world class peer-reviewd open access journals with the support of 30,000 well-versed scholars as editorial team and aimed to disseminate the scholarly knowledge to the scientific society. OMICS online also organizing 100 international scientific conferences and events yearly all over the world with the support of 100+ scientific associations worldwide.
