What is GlycoCT?
The GlycoCT format is a common format for encoding carbohydrate sequences that is based on a connection table approach with a controlled vocabulary to name monosaccharides, adopting IUPAC rules to generate a consistent, machine-readable nomenclature. The condensed format allows for unique identification of glycan structures in a compact manner.
How to get a GlycoCT encoding
A number of databases and tools support the export of glycan structures into GlycoCT including GlycoWorkBench and the embedded GlycanBuilder. Simply, build your structure then 'File'-->'Export'-->'GlycoCT Condensed'
