Outline of R&D

Glycomics research has focused attention on glycan function occurring within living organisms, and glycoinfomatics techniques are needed to be able to analyze many experimental data which are being accumulated, such as mass spectrometry data, microarray data, etc. In this work, we aim for the elucidation of the interaction mechanism between proteins and glycans from experimental data in the Integrated Database Project using our software tool to align multiple glycan structures.
