New to the CAZy classification? Read this first.
I am a CNRS Director of Research at the Architecture et Fonction des Macromolecules Biologiques Laboratory in Marseille, France. I have developed the family classification of glycoside hydrolases and subsequently applied it to other categories of carbohydrate-active enzymes. Together with Pedro M. Coutinho we developed and continuously update the Carbohydrate-Active enZYme database (CAZy at http://www.cazy.org/).
