SimGlycan&® Software (a product of PREMIER Biosoft) predicts glycan and glycopeptide structures from SCIEX mass spectrometer-acquired MS/MS data, in order to help identify glycosylation sites and post-translational modifications. Using the enterprise edition allows users to download a glycan template containing precisely curated glycan structures from MIDAS as well as create glycan templates so that novel glycan structures can be added to the database. If users are working with a private custom database or with proprietary data, the enterprise edition provides a secure tool for identifying novel glycans. Users can add to or delete glycan structures from the database or create their own sub-database for narrowing down the search. Structural information for multiple glycans can be stored in a single file and added to the database.
The enterprise edition includes the SimGlycan client software and the SimGlycan server software, which also contains the database. The processing speed of the software depends on the the type of PC used, searches performed using the internet can be faster.
