Tool URL Description
GlyTouCan https://glytoucan.org/ A comprehensive glycan structure repository
GlyGen https://glygen.org/ A project for carbohydrate and glycoconjugate related data integration and dissemination, to retrieve information from various data sources, to integrate and harmonize this data through a user-friendly Web interface
UniCarbKB http://www.unicarbkb.org/ A knowledge base with curated glycoconjugate information and their annotations
UniCarb-DB https://unicarb-db.expasy.org/ A database with the structural and experimental MS-glycomic data
Glynsight https://glycoproteome.expasy.org/glynsight/ A comparison tool that visualizes and interactively compares glycoprofiles uploaded by users. Initially, the tool was created specifically for IgG N-glycan profiles, but it can be extended to any data profiling N- or O-linked glycans
EpitopeXtractor https://glycoproteome.expasy.org/epextractor/ A collection of glyco-epitopes from four sources. EpitopeXtractor helps you (1) extract all the epitopes contained in one or more glycan structures from a glycomic sample and (2) map the results in Glycdin' our epitope network viewer
GlyCreSoft https://mobiusklein.github.io/glycresoft/docs/_build/html/ A glycan composition assigning tools for LC–MS and LC–MS/MS data that uses information on the biosynthetic network relationships among glycans
Glypy https://github.com/mobiusklein/glypy A well-documented glycan analysis and glycoinformatics library for Python
