The UniLectin portal (https://unilectin.unige.ch/) was designed in 2019 with the goal of centralising curated and predicted data on carbohydrate-binding proteins known as lectins. UniLectin is also intended as a support for the study of lectomes (full lectin set) of organisms or tissues. The present update describes the inclusion of several new modules and details the latest (https://unilectin.unige.ch/humanLectome/), covering our knowledge of the human lectome and comprising 215 unevenly characterised lectins, particularly in terms of structural information. Each HumanLectome entry is protein-centric and compiles evidence of carbohydrate recognition domain(s), specificity, 3D-structure, tissue-based expression and related genomic data. Other recent improvements regarding interoperability and accessibility are outlined.
