To search registered glycans with a specific structural fragment, it is possible to build through a graphical interface as shown in the figure. The tool used is based on the work done for GlycanBuilder with Vaadin as described in
Damerell D, Ceroni A, Maass K, Ranzinger R, Dell A, Haslam SM. The GlycanBuilder and GlycoWorkbench glycoinformatics tools: updates and new developments. Biol Chem. 2012;393:1357–1362. PubMed.
It is possible to create or extend from existing structures within this interface.
Note: User registration is not required to query for a structure.
Once the structure is complete, a sequence is generated from the input and send to GlyCosmos text search interface.
Click the search button to perform a complete match search. As a result, the image of the matched glycan structure and the accession number are displayed.
Note: The search result can be download as a CSV file.
