An ontology based searchable repository of glycan structures
MetadataShow full item record
In the field of Chemistry and more specifically Biochemistry, carbohydrates play a key role in numerous scientific studies. The complex structure of carbohydrates makes it a challenging task to study them. Thus, categorizing, storing and managing the information about these structures in a consistent fashion that is useful and acceptable by the scientific community have become a matter to tackle. In this research, The goal of this research has been to design and create an ontology based data store and search system to provide the scientists with an efficient, consistent, flexible and easy to use system to study and examine the molecular structure of carbohydrates.
