The Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG) is a large research initiative, funded by NIGMS, and formed to define the paradigms by which protein-carbohydrate interactions mediate cell communication. The strategy to achieve this goal is to work with the scientific community to create unique resources and services that Participating Investigators can utilize in their own research. Data produced by the Scientific Cores, much of which is generated using samples provided by investigators, are uploaded into the CFG relational database, the primary vehicle for integrating data across platforms and for dissemination of data to investigators and to the scientific community. Specialty databases for glycan-binding proteins, glycan structures, and glycosyltransferases are available. Participating Investigators who use CFG resources in their own research programs are publishing their findings in scientific articles and reviews; the rate of new publications involving CFG resources is more than doubling each year. The vision to harness the cumulative research of Participating Investigators and data produced by the CFG Scientific Cores will be a major force in achieving the CFG's goals.
