Stores a collection of experimentally determined glycan structures. KEGG GLYCAN is a publicly accessible database where a unique structure corresponds to an entry annotated with various information for the structure, including composition, class, and mass, as well as a separate GIF image file for display. The database contains structures from CarbBank, recent publications, or KEGG Pathways. It also contains links to other databases in KEGG.
