Databases of complex carbohydratesFunded under: FP2-BRIDGE
The Complex Carbohydrate Structure Database (CCSD) was created to facilitate access to the enormous number of published carbohydrate structures. Its aim is to include the primary structures of all naturally occurring carbohydrates that are larger than disaccharides, together with references to the papers where these structures were originally reported. The residue-complex concept used by CarboBank, the corresponding database- management program, is discussed, and the use of CCSD as a tool to build, for example, an NMR-spectroscopic database is described. Contact addresses, access and costs for the databases described are presented and the future prospects for carbohydrate databases are reviewed.
