Many pdb-files contain carbohydrate structures. Since there is not such a
standard nomenclature like it exists for amino acids, it is difficult to
find the carbohydrate information. Sometimes entire oligosaccharides are
encoded in one single residue. Information about carbohydrate linkages is
often missing, and if it is present, it is not in a unique format and
therefore also difficult to find.
pdb2linucs automatically extracts carbohydrate information from pdb-files
and displays it using the LINUCS-Code  or - translated
by LiGraph - the IUPAC-Notation.
