Abstract

Glycan and lectin microarrays are two arising technologies, very important to the glycomics field. Glycomics is the science that focuses on defining the structures and functions of carbohydrates in nature. These microarrays provide information regarding the interactions between specific carbohydrates and proteins, and it has many applications in clinical and research settings. Nevertheless, the availability of analytical software for these types of arrays is very limited, so researchers usually perform data processing and analytical pipelines manually, which is very time consuming and prone to error. SugarArray was born as a user-friendly and intuitive stand-alone solution that process the intensity data generated from glycan or lectin array studies, and displays the results to the user in an understandable manner. The solution also allows the users to manage the data as needed, create data plots and automatically generate reports. This tool was intended to simplify the processing steps of the analytical pipeline, so the users can focus on what really matters: understanding the results.
