SecReT6: a web-based resource for type VI secretion systems found in bacteria



Type VI secretion systems (T6SSs) are a class of sophisticated cell contact-dependent mechanisms involved in mediating antagonistic or synergistic communications between bacteria and/or bacteria and eukaryotes. These apparatuses have recently been found to be widely distributed among Gram-negative bacterial species. To date, only a few datasets of T6SS core components are available, such as KEGG and MicrobeWiki. Here, we have organized information derived from the reported literature and in silico predictions of T6SS gene clusters and cognate effectors as the web-based resource SecReT6 (Type VI Secretion system Resource).
