UniCarbKB is an initiative that aims to promote the creation of an online information storage and search platform for glycomics and glycobiology research. The knowledgebase will offer a freely accessible and information-rich resource supported by querying interfaces, annotation technologies and the adoption of common standards to integrate structural, experimental and functional data.
UniCarbKB builds on previous efforts by GlycoSuiteDB to curate information from the scientific literature on glycoprotein derived glycan structures. This knowledgebase will continue the principle and give access to both a curated and validated data repository.
UniCarbKB continues to build on the principles of EUROCarbDB to provide an open-access platform for glycoinformatics and provides the community with free access to a leading research platform.
