CAZypedia needs your input! We have many unassigned GH, PL, CE, AA, GT, and CBM pages in need of Authors and Responsible Curators.
Scientists at all career stages, including students, are welcome to contribute to CAZypedia. Read more here, and in the 10th anniversary article in Glycobiology.

Kiyotaka Fujita is an Associate Professor at Kagoshima University in Japan. I cloned the genes for β-L-arabinobiosidase  (for which GH121 has been created), β-L-arabinofuranosidase  (for which GH127 has been created), and endo-α-N-acetylagalactosaminidase  (for which GH101 has been created) from Bifidobacterium longum.
