Glycans are essential to all scales of biology, with their intricate structures being crucial for their biological functions. The structural complexity of glycans is communicated through simplified and unified visual representations according to the Symbol Nomenclature for Glycans (SNFGs) guidelines adopted by the community. Here, we introduce GlycoDraw, a Python-native implementation for high-throughput generation of high-quality, SNFG-compliant glycan figures with flexible display options. GlycoDraw is released as part of our glycan analysis ecosystem, glycowork, facilitating integration into existing workflows by enabling fully automated annotation of glycan-related figures and thus assisting the analysis of e.g. differential abundance data or glycomics mass spectra.
