pdb-care: PDB CArbohydrate REsidue check (Version 2.0 beta)
A recent study revealed that about 30% of the carbohydrate-containing PDB entries comprise at least one error within the carbohydrate moieties [1].
To reduce this high rate of errors in further entries, pdb-care aids experimentalists in detecting discrepancies in connectivities and nomenclature.

This is a beta-version of a new pdb-care interface. Please note that this version can still contain some errors.
