This facility is based on the bioinformatics tools and curation efforts associated to the CAZy database, updated by the Glycogenomics team since its launch in September 1998.
This facility analyzes genomes and metagenomic datasets in order to identify the encoded enzymes for the assembly and breakdown of complex carbohydrates. The enzymes currently covered in our analyses include the glycoside hydrolases, glycosyltransferases, polysaccharide lyases, carbohydrate esterases, and auxiliary redox proteins such as lytic polysaccharide mono-oxygenases).
Academic and private companies
Private companies: to be discussed (based on data volume, computer time required and human resources implicated). Academics: collaboration basis.
