GlycoMod has been developed by Elisabeth Gasteiger at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, in close collaboration with Nicolle Packer and Catherine Cooper, initially at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, and now at Proteome Systems Limited, Sydney, Australia. GlycoMod is a program designed to find all possible compositions of a glycan structure from its experimentally determined mass. This is done by comparing the mass of the glycan to a list of pre-computed masses of glycan compositions. The program can be used with free or derivatised glycans and for glycopeptides where the peptide mass or protein is known. Compositional constraints can be applied to the output.
