Like genomics and proteomics, glycomics includes both the determination of structures and the deciphering of functions and correlations between them. Structural determination of carbohydrates is orders of magnitude more difficult than those of nucleotides and peptides ...)

It has already appeared in genomics ... and proteomics ... This new term refers to the study of sugars within organisms.)
