What is the CFG?

The Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG) is a large international research initiative that works with and serves the scientific community. We provide a networking forum and glycomics resources which enable our Participating Investigators to reveal functions of glycans and glycan-binding proteins (GBPs) that impact human health and disease. The CFG offers resources to the community free of charge, including glycan array screening services, a reagent bank, and access to our large glycomics database and data analysis tools. The extensive data sets that have resulted from the use of CFG resources are publicly available through our website, and include results from glycan array screening, glycogene microarray screening, mouse phenotyping, and glycan profiling experiments. Our website also offers access to the CFG Molecule Pages, which provide detailed information about glycan structures, GBPs, and glycosyltransferases.
