Abstract

Carbohydrate Structure Database (CSDB) is a regularly updated database on structures, taxonomy, bibliography, NMR spectra, and other data published for prokaryotic, plant, and fungal carbohydrates and their derivatives, including those containing noncarbohydrate moieties. Key features of this project are high data quality and aiming at full coverage. CSDB has multiple services, such as NMR prediction, NMR-based structure ranking, and tools for statistical analysis. It is freely available at http://​csdb.​glycoscience.​ru.
