Use the tool

The tool produces a diagram that summarises a user-specified set of glycan structures.

Sets of structures can be specified via the Sugar Builder. This is handy if you don’t know the IUPAC nomenclature.

Alternatively, sets of structures in IUPAC format can be provided as a list.

Once the set of structures has been entered, press the ‘Build Summary’ button.

Sugar Builder

Drag and drop to build a structure. If you wish to delete residues, simply hold down SHIFT and left-click on the residue you wish to delete.
