  1. Five source databases provided taxonomic annotations in the format listed. For each database the numbers listed are: total structures with taxonomic annotations (column 3), unique species names or IDs found (column 4), and unique NCBI taxonomy IDs remaining after data integration and standardization in GlycomeDB (column 5). The large difference between the number of free-text names and assigned NCBI IDs is a result of the usage of different names for the same species and names which could not be translated to NCBI taxonomy IDs.
