CAZypedia needs your help: This page is currently lacking a Responsible Curator and one or more Authors. If you are an expert on this family and would like to help us improve CAZypedia by getting involved with writing and maintaining this page, please contact the Primary Curator.
  • If you are interested in contributing to CAZypedia, please see the 10th anniversary publication [1] and this page for an overview of the content and mission of our community-driven resource.
  • All present and future authors of CAZypedia are welcomed to include the CAZypedia article [1] in their publication lists, to acknowledge their essential contributions.
  • Until this CAZypedia page is completed, current information on the composition of GH88 is available via the corresponding page of the CAZy database.
