    A community compendium for extracellular vesicles

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are membraneous vesicles released by a variety of cells into the extracellular microenvironment. Based on the mode of biogenesis, EVs can be classified into three broad classes (i), ectosomes or shedding microvesicles (ii), exosomes and (iii), apoptotic bodies. Recent studies have ignited significant interest on EVs by elucidating their role in intercellular communication, pathogenesis, drug, vaccine and gene-vector delivery and as possible reservoirs of biomarkers. With such immense interest, the amount of data generated has increased exponentially. Vesiclepedia is a a manually curated compendium of molecular data (lipid, RNA and protein) identified in different classes of EVs.
