The January 2024 update of CAZy CAZy wishes...

addition : 23 février 2024.

CAZy wishes you a wonderful 2024 year, healthy and full of discoveries !!!
We would like to start this year by a big thank to CAZypedia contributors and organizers, as the lastly released families, described below, already have CAZypedia pages !

This month, we are welcoming a novel GH family, GH188 after the discovery of a NAD+ dependent sulfoquinovosidase active enzyme by Kaur et al. (PMID=38100472).
We also released another CBM family, CBM101 (Mei et al. ; PMID=38010608, discovered by the same laboratory who recently contributed CBM99, CBM100 and GH187.

Also, for those who missed it : end of 2023, we released on CAZy.org our expert annotation of the eukaryotic genomes sequenced by JGI after publication, including both MycoCosm and PhycoCosm projects ! This huge annotation effort is accomplished by Bernard and Elodie. We hope you’ll appreciate it.

The December 2023 update of CAZy

addition : 22 janvier 2024.

Last month, we released on CAZy.org our expert annotation of the eukaryotic genomes sequenced by JGI after publication, including both MycoCosm and PhycoCosm projects ! This huge annotation effort is accomplished by Bernard and Elodie. We hope you’ll appreciate it.

This month, we are welcoming a small CBM family, CBM100 described in Liu et al. ; PMID=37951443, by the same laboratory who led to last month released endo-1,3-fucanase GH187 (Shen et al. ; PMID=37940306), and porphyran binding CBM99 (Mei et al. ; PMID=37769778).

The November 2023 update

addition : 11 décembre 2023.

We are extremely excited to announce that, from now on, we will share on CAZy.org our expert annotation of the eukaryotic genomes sequenced by JGI after publication, including both MycoCosm and PhycoCosm projects ! This huge annotation effort is accomplished by Bernard and Elodie.
This month, we are also welcoming two novel families from the sea, discovered by the same group : a novel endo-fucanase specific of 1,3-fucans founding the GH187 family (Shen et al. ; PMID=37940306), and a porphyran binding module founding the CBM99 family (Mei et al. ; PMID=37769778).
Additionally, we integrated the novel human glycosyltransferase discovered by Larsen et al. ; PMID=37186866 few month ago, founder of the GT117 family.

Finally, we solved a bug on the form allowing authors to notify CAZy after a biochemical characterization/publication. If you recently submitted functional information but did not get any answer/confirmation from our side... we likely never received it, sincere apologies.

The October 2023 update

addition : 14 novembre 2023.

This month, we are welcoming a novel GH family, GH186 (Motouchi et al. ; PMID=37735577), a nice reminder that novel CAZyme families can be discovered even in the most "model" oganisms such as E. coli.
We are also excited to announce that, in a very close future, we will release on CAZy.org the annotations of hundreds of eukaryotic genomes published and hosted at JGI, mostly from MycoCosm projects but not only !

September 2023 update

addition : 13 octobre 2023.

After the excellent summer CAZymes GRC meeting (Andover, NH) and necessary summer break, a new academic year is starting...
Please maintain the community effort to warn CAZy about novel publications/functionally characterized CAZymes !
This month, we are welcoming a novel GH family, GH185, and a novel GH13 subfamily and CBM family, GH13_47 and CBM98, and a correction was made to GH184 functional description (sincere apologies).
