Welcome to SalivaDB
SalivaDB is a comprehensive and manually-curated database for salivary biomarkers found in Homo sapiens. It contains 15,821 entries for 7729 unique salivary biomarkers consisting of proteins, metabolites, microbes, miRNA, and genes. These entries are manually extracted from the research articles and publically available databases - SalivaTecDB and HMDB.

Aim and Objective: The main aim of this database is to serve the academic community working in field of saliva based diagnostics and research. This is a comprehensive database which provides information about most of the Salivary Biomarkers reported in literature. This information is essential as these biomarkers can be used to develop non-invasive and inexpensive diagnostic methods for various diseases.
Search Options: The database offers i) Basic Search which allows the user to search in any field or against multiple fields. By default, it searches against major fields. It also allows the user to DISPLAY desired fields of the database. ii) Advanced Search which facilitates user to search SalivaDB using multiple queries joined by logical operators like AND/OR/NOT. This search module allows user to perform search on any or all fields of SalivaDB. It also allows to DISPLAY all field or user selected fields.
Browse: Modules under this section allow the users to retrieve data in a classified manner. These modules allow users to browse various types of salivary biomarkers belonging to the categories - genes, proteins, microbes, metabolites, and genes. The biomarkers can also be browsed using a disease class or exosomal origin.
Mobile Compatible Website: SalivaDB is built on a responsive template, compatible for desktop, tablet, and smartphone. These templates are dynamic that fit content based on screen size of the device.
