The Bacterial Carbohydrate Structure Database (BCSDB), maintained since 2005, was expanded to cover glycans from plants and fungi. The current coverage on plant and fungal glycans includes several thousands of the CarbBank records, as well as data published before 1996 but not deposited in CarbBank. Prior to deposition, the data were verified against the original publications and supplemented with additional information, such as NMR spectra. Both the Bacterial and Plant and Fungal Carbohydrate Structure Databases are freely available at http://csdb.glycoscience.ru.
