Bioinformatics and Databases

Software tools and resources developed by the NCFG:

  • GLAD -  a tool to visualize, analyze and compare glycan microarray data for exploratory data analysis. 
  • GlycoGlyph - An open source glycan drawing, visualizing and naming application. Allows you to draw glycans in SNFG format and obtain names in CFG linear nomenclature or GlycoCT format.
  • GlycoPattern - A web-based platform to store and analyze glycan microarray data
  • GlycomeSeq - A theoretical database of the soluble human milk glycan glycome

Other Resources:

  • GlyTouCan - An international glycan structure repository
  • CFG databases for Glycan Arrays, Glycan Profiling, Glyco-gene microarrays, Mouse Phenotyping, and more.

  • GlyGen - Computational and informatics resources for glycoscience.

  • GRITS Toolbox - A freely available software program for the management and annotation of glycomics MS data.

  • DANGO - A freely available software for the management and annotation of intact glycosphingolipid MS data
