ready SugarBind

General Information
The SugarBind Database (SugarBindDB) was created in 2002 as part of an effort by the MITRE Corporation ( to develop a pathogen-capture technology based on the binding of viral, bacterial and biotoxin lectins to specific glycans (aka, sugars, carbohydrates) displayed on glycoprotein films. The database content results from compiling publicly available information. In 2010, the 2008 version of the database was migrated from MITRE Corporation to the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in Geneva, Switzerland. From then, substantial changes in the database design and usage were undertaken and previous content was significantly extended.
