The home for Functional Glycomics research
Free Tutorial Suite Sponsored By The Consortium for Functional Glycomics
|Learn to use The Consortium for Functional Glycomics Gateway. The CFG is a large international research initiative that works with and serves the scientific community. They provide a networking forum and glycomics resources which enable Participating Investigators to reveal functions of glycans and glycan-binding proteins (GBPs) that impact human health and disease. The CFG offers resources to the community free of charge, including glycan array screening services, a reagent bank, and access to a large glycomics database and data analysis tools. The extensive data sets that have resulted from the use of CFG resources are publicly available through the website, and include results from glycan array screening, glycogene microarray screening, mouse phenotyping, and glycan profiling experiments. This tutorial will explore the Gateway features and tools.|
- features of the Consortium for Functional Glycomics organization and goals
- about the "third alphabet" glycomics code that conveys crucial information in cells
- to explore Data and Molecule Pages provided by the CFG researchers
- to access Paradigm Pages with excellent summary knowledge about exemplary glycan-binding proteins (GBPs)
- to find additional supporting resources provided by the consortium
