What Information is Recorded?
For each publication curated we carefully review the manuscript and record the following details:
- Sample preparation procedures and glycan release techniques and/or methods, which can alter the glycan structure including exoglycosidase treatment and derivatization
- The analytical (mass, sequencing and linkage) approach
- Complementary validation methods (‘Validation Methods’ subsection)
Such metadata can be used to assess the reliability and accuracy of the information stored.
