Glycoproteomics is a rapidly developing field, driven by improvements in sample preparation, instrumentation, and post-acquisition software. Recent years have ushered in a wave of new glycoproteomics studies, both as mass spectrometrists learn how to best apply their expertise to the needs of glyco-analysis and as MS methods become more democratized for glycobiologists to use. Here we will cover new developments in 1) preparation of glycoproteomic samples, 2) quantitation strategies used for glycopeptide characterization, 3) the most useful data acquisition strategies for various types of glycopeptides, 4) software for interpretation of glycopeptide spectra, and 5) tools for data visualization and meta-analysis. It will be difficult for this overview to be truly comprehensive or thoroughly detailed, but the hope is that this discussion will provide a springboard to generate more interest in glycoproteomic advances and will point interested parties to relevant starting points for continued learning.
