Carbohydrates are complex molecules that are extremely difficult to synthesize by both chemical and enzymatic means. This is one of the main reasons why the entire field of glycomics is less prominent than genomics and proteomics. In the following report we discuss the introduction of the automatic chemical synthesis of carbohydrates and its impact on glycoscience.
