SugarBindDB covers knowledge of interactions between pathogen and biotoxin lectins with carbohydrate ligands of mammalian hosts. Information is collected by experts from articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. This chapter describes the evolution of SugarBindDB content, directed toward bringing the database closer to a reference resource for research on the glycobiology of infectious disease. SugarBindDB is part of the wider UniCarbKB initiative and as such shares search and display functionalities with UniCarbKB (see ▶“UniCarbKB: Emergent Knowledgebase for Glycomics”). It connects structural to functional information relative to sugars.
