Hello. My name is René Ranzinger,
and I'm working for the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center
at the University of Georgia.
I'm going to tell you something about GlycoBioInformatics.
However, before we start with the real presentation,
I would like to point out 2 things.
First, with respect to the content of the presentation,
this presentation is no introduction in BioInformatics algorithms or implementation strategies.
What I am going to do in this presentation is to give you an overview
about existing tools like databases, web applications, and programs
that you can use in your daily research.
This presentation is more of interest for people that would like to use tools
than for software developers that are interested in developing tools.
The second thing I would like to point out is a web application
with the name GlycomicsPortal.
The GlycomicsPortal can be found under the URL presented in the slide
and is essentially a registry for glycomics software,
including databases, applications, web services, and workflows.
All tools and databases I'm going to present in this presentation
are registered in the portal,
and you can go to the URL and look them up
and find more information about these tools.
By using the name of the software or database
