in development Web3 Unique Representation of Carbohydrate Structures

Abbreviation: WURCS


General Information
The Web3 Unique Representation of Carbohydrate Structures (WURCS) defines a generalizable and unique linear representation for carbohydrate structures. A recent update (WURCS 2.0) was created to handle structural ambiguity around (potential) carbonyl groups incidental to the carbohydrate analysis. WURCS 2.0 can represent a wider variety of carbohydrate structures containing ambiguous monosaccharides, such as those whose ring closure is undefined or whose anomeric information is only known.

Implementing Databases (3)
GlycomeDB
GlycomeDB is the result of a systematic data integration effort, and provides an overview of all carbohydrate structures available in public databases, as well as cross-links.

UniCarbKB
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.

GlyTouCan
The international glycan structure repository for glycans published in the literature. Any glycan structure, ranging in resolution from monosaccharide composition to fully defined structures can be registered and have an accession number assigned as long as there are no inconsistencies in the structure.
