Text Interface

Another method to query structures is via the text interface (using GlyCosmso text search). If the glycan structure sequence string is known, and the format is one of the following:

  • GlycoCT condensed
  • IUPAC condensed
  • IUPAC extended
  • Linear Code ®
  • KCF

The sequence can be typed or pasted into the text area input screen.

Glytoucan Text Interface

Only one sequence can be pasted into this field. Please be careful of whitespace when pasting text.

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.

Glytoucan Graphical Interface

Please note that the sequence is converted to WURCS, and the WURCS sequence is used to search for the structure
