Abstract

GLYCOSCIENCES.de started as one of the first online portals containing bioinformatics resources for glycobiology and glycomics. It consists of a variety of tools and databases that are connected to each other. Many of the applications are related to carbohydrate 3D structures, but other data sources such as MS or NMR are also supported. This chapter provides an overview of the available resources, their interconnections, and options to access and use the data.
