Grammar based compression approach to extraction of common rules among multiple trees of glycans and RNAs

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4419412
PMID: 25907438
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-015-0558-4

[…] , respectively. For this analysis, we utilized 16 glycans, G02677, G03655, G03661, G03664, G03678, G03687, G04186, G04458, G04695, G04802, G05058, G05226, G05256, G05988, G07243, and G09054, from the KEGG Glycan database []. As glycans are regarded as vertex labeled rooted trees, wherein each vertex is a monosaccharide, the glycans were transformed into edge labeled rooted trees, wherein each edge […]


Deciphering the glycogenome of schistosomes

Front Genet
PMCID: 4122909
PMID: 25147556
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2014.00262

[…] oughput experimental technologies to help scientists understand high-level functions and utilities of various biological systems. With the information generated from the Schistosoma genome sequences, KEGG Glycan constructed pathway maps on molecular interactions including glycan biosynthesis and metabolism that are annotated with the specific enzymes/proteins involved and the corresponding genes ( […]


Drug Off Target Effects Predicted Using Structural Analysis in the Context of a Metabolic Network Model

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 2950675
PMID: 20957118
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000938

[…] t using the Clean3D Fine Build tool available through the Marvin web applet ( The three-dimensional structures for glycolipids were derived from their KEGG glycan structures ( using SWEET-II ( structures were pre-processed for docking using AutoDockTools […]


The DBCLS BioHackathon: standardization and interoperability for bioinformatics web services and workflows. The DBCLS BioHackathon Consortium*

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 2939597
PMID: 20727200
DOI: 10.1186/2041-1480-1-8

[…] workflow consisted of an input glycan structure in LINUCS format, and a search for glycans with similar structures in the RINGS (Resource For Informatics Of Glycans) database returning structures as KEGG GLYCAN IDs. The IDs were subsequently transformed to the corresponding GLYDE-II format data, which passed to another web service to output the structure's image in SVG format. […]


GlycoForm and Glycologue: two software applications for the rapid construction and display of N glycans from mammalian sources

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 2904795
PMID: 20565879
DOI: 10.1186/1756-0500-3-173

[…] raw [], which is a powerful tool not only for drawing glycans, but chemical structures generally, allows the user to draw the structure of a glycan using a specialized tool palette and then query the KEGG GLYCAN database for similar structures.In this paper we present two new software applications for displaying N-glycans in mammalian cells: GlycoForm and Glycologue. Rather than adopting the palet […]


A weighted q gram method for glycan structure classification

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3009505
PMID: 20122206
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-S1-S33

[…] the LK method. For the monosaccharides and bonds, since there are too many possibilities of combinations, in the database, we only choose the most frequent ones, which appear most in mammals. In the KEGG glycan database, the most frequent monosaccharides (including other chemical compounds) and the bonds are shown in Table . The similarity among monosaccharides can be obtained from the chemical s […]
