In this talk I will describe some invariants for transverse links in
S^3 (endowed with the symmetric contact structure) arising from the
deformations of Khovanov sl_3 homology.
I will start with a brief introduction to the theory of transverse
links in S^3. Afterward, I will recall some known results concerning
transverse invariants in link homologies. In particular, I will focus
on the invariants coming from Khovanov-Rozansky homologies, and those
coming from the deformations of Khovanov homology.
