HUMAN Glycoproteomics INITIATIVE (hgi)

The Human Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI) purpose is to define community standards for data presentation in functional glycomics and glycoproteomics in relation to diseases. The goal is to facilitate data comparison, exchange and verification. The HGI will be comprised of a number of researchers and collaborators throughout the world who are dedicated to fostering and accelerating research progress in disease glycomics by pursuing collaborative and interdisciplinary research. This project will connect the other HPP activity in HUPO more tightly and will permit the exchange of information of mutual interest. The data and information will be shared with members, non-participating researchers and will be made available for public, academic research and teaching purposes. In order to avoid diluting efforts by other on-going related activities such as NIH consortium for functional glycomics, Japanese consortium for glycobiology and glycotechnology, Eurocarb etc, this initiative will focus exclusively on disease glycomics and glycoproteomics.

Current lines of work:

  • Three pilot studies were performed in this HGI thus far and the results of the third pilot study were published in 2016. The next work is now under discussion.
