O mém projektu

Glycans are enormously disposed for coding and transferring of the information in live objects and therefore, they are a key medium ensuring communication among cells. Unfortunately, glycoinformatics community developed separately and uses untypical data formats. Therefore, even the glycan databases are full of useful information, most of the researchers cannot benefit from them. For this reason, a goal of my project is to integrate data from main glyco-databases into Protein Data Bank.
