Functional Glycomics homepage

Welcome to the home of the Consortium for Functional Glycomics

The CFG remains operational and under the direction of Dr. Richard Cummings, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, and as part of his NIH supported center, the National Center for Functional Glycomics:

We continue to offer the CFG mammalian-type glycan microarray, now version 5.3 with 600 glycans present, as well as the microbial glycan microarray with over 300 targets present. If you would like to request the use of glycan arrays, please visit 'CFG Resources' on the left of this page and click 'Glycan array screening' to see additional information and make the request. We also review requests for the remaining glycan compound available through the CFG, and the request can also be made under 'CFG Resources' then 'Glycans/reagents'. We are trying to keep current with the list of glycans still available, but sometimes they are no longer available before we have had a chance to update the website.

If you are interested in other types of arrays and services, please visit the NCFG website listed above.

The Functional Glycomics Gateway is a comprehensive resource for functional glycomics research brought to you by the Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG). Use this site to access our extensive databases, to request CFG resources and services, and to visit our archives of research publications and editorials.

Use the search box, or the menus at left, to find data from experiments that have been performed by the CFG (including glycan array screening, glycan profiling, glycogene microarray screening and phenotyping of glycogene mouse strains) and to visit the Molecule Pages (which offer detailed information about glycan structures, glycan-binding proteins, and glycosyltransferases.)
