mycoCLAP is a searchable database of fungal genes encoding lignocellulose-active proteins that have been biochemically characterized. All the biochemical properties and functional annotations described in mycoCLAP are manually curated and are based on experimental evidence reported in published literature. The aim of mycoCLAP is to provide data on solely characterized proteins to facilitate the functional annotation of novel lignocellulose-active proteins. The current version of mycoCLAP contains a comprehensive set of fungal glycoside hydrolases, carbohydrate esterases and polysaccharide lyases. (Database Search)
