Australian Glycoscience Society

Glyco@Oz was originally founded as an informal network in late 2019 following the 1st and 2nd Australasian Glycoscience Symposium (Lorne, VIC, Feb, 2018 and Adelaide, SA, Sep, 2019, respectively), which highlighted the need for a network that could serve to connect Australian glycoscientists across institutions and interest areas.

Capitalising on the success of the Glyco@Oz network and building on the substantial momentum and support from the community, we launched the Australian Glycoscience Society in July 2022.

The mission of the Australian Glycoscience Society is to advance the glycosciences in Australia by:

  • Raising the profile of the glycosciences in Australia and internationally
  • Diversifying and strengthening the glycosciences within Australia by facilitating connections between individuals and other associations, within Australia and internationally
  • Advancing the glycosciences through outreach and exchange across all fields relevant to the science of sugars
  • Advancing education by fostering the talents of young glycoscientists

Glycoforum EU Glycoscience Special Feature

Glycoforum are hosting a special feature on EU glycoscience research and would like EU glycoscientists to author articles from any area of glycoscience. Glycoforum aims to make glycoscience accessible to all and so the articles should be written in an easy to understand manner. Authors will receive an honorarium for their contributions. For further information please see the author guidelines. If you wish to participate please contact Naoki Ota (  Article_Guidelines_for_Glycoforum_2022.08


Glycoforum® was established in 1997, with the aim of introducing rapidly developing carbohydrate research in an understandable way not only to specialists but also widely to those who are interested in the field through publication of review articles, research introductions, etc. by front-line glycoscience researchers, thereby contributing to development of the carbohydrate research field.

GlyGen: Computational and Informatics Resources for Glycoscience

GlyGen is a data integration and dissemination project for carbohydrate and glycoconjugate related data. GlyGen retrieves information from multiple international data sources and integrates and harmonizes this data. The GlyGen web portal allows exploration of this data and execution of unique searches that cannot be performed using any of the integrated databases in isolation. GlyGen also provides machine readable APIs and a SPARQL endpoint to access the integrated data.

Glycoscience seminar

NIH and FDA Glycoscience research day 2020.

This event features a broad range of aspects of the glycosciences; promote communication and interaction among intramural laboratories, as well as with researchers from local universities; and facilitate collaboration. The meeting will include morning and afternoon platform sessions.
