ABSTRACT Hydrophilic Interaction Liquid Chromatography (HILIC) glycopeptide enrichment is an indispensable tool for the high-throughput characterisation of glycoproteomes. Despite its utility, HILIC enrichment is associated with a number of short comings including requiring large amounts of starting material, potentially introducing chemical artefacts such as formylation, and biasing/under-sampling specific classes of glycopeptides. Here we investigate HILIC enrichment independent approaches for the study of bacterial glycoproteomes. Using three Burkholderia species ( B. cenocepacia, B. dolosa and B. ubonensis ) we demonstrate that short aliphatic O -linked glycopeptides are typically absent..
