The structural complexity of glycans is communicated through simplified and unified visual representations according to the Symbol Nomenclature for Glycans (SNFG) 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.
