  • SigMol is a repertoire of Quorum Sensing Signaling Molecules in Prokaryotes.

  • It contains 1382 entries of 182 unique signaling molecules from 215 organisms.

  • It integrates information of various signaling systems like: AHLs (N-Acyl homoserine lactones), DKPs (Diketopiperazines), HAQs(4-hydroxy-2-alkylquinolines), DSFs (Diffusible Signal Factors), AI-2 (Autoinducer-2) etc from different bacteria and archea.

  • SigMol allow users to get chemical, biological and structural information of signaling molecules.

  • User-friendly browsing and searching facility is also incorporated in the database.

  • SigMol will help the scientific community engaged in the area of quorum sensing, sociomicrobiology and their therapeutics application.
