In contrast to the linear sequences of protein and DNA, oligosaccharides are branched structures. In addition, almost all glycoproteins consist of a heterogeneous collection of differently glycosylated variants. Glycan analysis therefore requires high-resolution separation techniques that can provide detailed structural
