1. 3D-Symbol Nomenclature for Glycans (3D-SNFG): Create 3D atomic models of glycans

Description: 3D-SNFG is a cartoon representation for atomic models of carbohydrates. The glycan can be depicted with large shapes, or icons centered within the rings.

2. DrawGlycan SNFG: Convert IUPAC input strings to sketches of glycans and glycopeptides

Description: DrawGlycan-SNFG uses IUPAC-condensed string inputs to generate glycan and glycopeptide drawings. Bond fragmentation and other glycan descriptors can be included.

3. GlycanBuilder2-SNFG: GlycanBuilder updated to handle SNFG

Description: GlycanBuilder2 is an updated version of GlycanBuilder which supports the building of structures to and from WURCS2.0, drawing cyclic glycans and specifying glycans with cross-linked substituents. It also supports SNFG symbols.
