A Comparison of Glycomics in Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes

Ankita Dey and Shanawaz Shaik

Glycomes are found in organisms in Free State or in complex molecules these are widely distributed in nature. The study of these sugars is Glycomics, it can also be defined as systematic study of glycan structures present in cells and organisms. Proteoglycan, glycoprotein, glycolipid are types of glycoconjugates, the carbohydrate portion found in them is Glycan. Study related to it is called as Glycobiology. Glycobiology involves study of structures and biology of glycans and biosynthesis of it [1,2].
