Outline of R&D

The GlyCosmos Portal, which integrates glycoscience information with other omics data, will be improved to promote interdisciplinary integration with microorganisms, plants, proteomics, and other fields. Specifically, the repositories will be expanded to accept new lectin microarray data, microorganism-related glycan information, as well as glycan-related pathway data. In addition, a system to curate and publish the repository data will be established.
