Abstract

Carbohydrate Active enZymes (CAZymes) are pivotal in pathogen recognition, signalling, structure and energy metabolism. CAZy (www.cazy.org) is the most comprehensive CAZyme database, but it does not provide methods for automating data retrieval or submitting sequences for annotation.

cazy_webscraper retrieves user-specified datasets from CAZy, producing a local SQL database enabling thorough interrogation of the data. cazy_webscraper can also retrieve protein sequences from GenBank and download structure files from RCSB PDB.
