Use GlycanBuilder

Build your glycan or epitope by clicking on the coloured shapes or selecting from the menu in the top black bar. Then click the "Search" button to search the SugarBind database.

Caution! Pressing the "Back" button of the browser can lead to strange behaviour of GlycanBuilder. If the graphical builder is not responding properly, it should be restarted from the menu : "File" -> "Restart".
