The purpose of this Web tool is to allow users to upload a text file of monosaccharide base
compositions as often obtained from mass spectrometry (MS). Then these compositions are
translated into WURCS sequences, and further searched in GlyTouCan for existing glycan IDs.
If the composition is already registered, then the corresponding glycan ID will be displayed.
For those not registered, the WURCS string will be displayed to allow the user to register it
into GlyTouCan. Moreover, a link to download the list of WURCS strings into a file will be
displayed if one or more compositions were found that were not already registered.
How it works
Run the tool
Select a file containing tab-delimited monosaccharide base compositions and substituents with headings such as
Hex, HexNAc, dHex, Neu5Ac, Glc, Gal, Man, Fuc, GlcNAc, P, S, Ac.
- The full list of currently supported monosaccharides and substituents is available here.
- Sample data can be downloaded from here.
