Glycosciences.DB is the main glycan structure database of Each distinct chain, consisting of a carbohydrate part and, if applicable, an aglycon part has a database id, called LinucsID. Additional data, such as bibliographic references, NMR spectra, PDB entries that feature the glycan, etc. are assigned to these entries.

Glycans can be searched by their (sub-)structure, residue composition, N-glycan classification, contained sequence motifs, etc. (see below for a list of all query options). Many query forms allow further restrictions, such as limiting the search to glycans that consist of a certain number of residues, or entries that feature references to PDB entries. That way Glycosciences.DB can be used e.g. to search for specific carbohydrate chains in the PDB, which is not possible at the PDB interfaces so far.
