New PDB Preprocessing! http://glycam.org/docs/news/2014/12/05/new-pdb-preprocessing/ Fri, 05 Dec 2014 01:42:00 +0000 http://glycam.org/docs/news/?p=97

We have long been working on rewriting the source code for the site, and we have finally transferred a part of the site to the new code!  The PDB Preprocessor, either as a standalone utlity or as the first step in the Glycoprotein Builder, is now using the new code.

Even better is that now you can use the code, too!  The documentation is still a little sparse, but if you like, you can download the C++ source and the Python control scripts and do your own PDB Preprocessing on your local machine.

The C++ source is the GMML Library.

The Python control scripts are released as GEMS.

The new GLYCAM-Web is here! http://glycam.org/docs/news/2014/04/30/the-new-glycam-web-is-here/ Wed, 30 Apr 2014 18:46:12 +0000 http://glycam.org/docs/news/?p=66

We in the Woods group are pleased to announce the new GLYCAM-Web!

General enhancements include:

  • Hardware and software are much more stable
  • Cleaner, more organized interface
  • Greatly expanded (and still expanding!) documentation
  • New Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) Builder
  • Email notifications
  • Bug tracking facility
  • Improved visibility of force field information

Enhancements to the Carbohydrate Builder include:

  • Build direction is now from non-reducing end to reducing end
  • Ability to add derivatives, including permethylation
  • improved error checking and prevention
  • Simpler build process for branched structures
  • Simplified Build-Via-URL

Enhancements to the Glycoprotein Builder include:

  • Improved and more flexible PDB file pre-processing
  • Ability to handle greater diveristy of PDB files
  • Ability to add library glycans to O-linking positions
  • Improved glycosylation interface
  • Improved PDB Protein Preprocessing


New site coming soon! http://glycam.org/docs/news/2014/04/21/new-site-coming-soon/ Mon, 21 Apr 2014 17:02:30 +0000 http://glycam.org/docs/news/?p=42

We are in the final stretch, and the updated GLYCAM-Web will become official soon!

For a short time after migration, this development site will not be available, but the main site will be identical to this one.  In fact, it will be this one!

GAG Builder http://glycam.org/docs/news/2014/04/21/gag-builder/ Mon, 21 Apr 2014 16:59:45 +0000 http://glycam.org/docs/news/?p=40

GLYCAM-Web now has a simple, intuitive builder for glycosaminoglycan (GAG) fragments.  Click here to try it out!
