Here, we present mVOC, which is based on an extensive literature search for microbial volatile organic compounds (mVOCs). mVOCs are emitted by bacterial and fungal species. About 10,000 species are yet described while one million microbial species (or even more) are expected to exist everywhere in the earth' biosphere. mVOCs play important roles in nature. For example, they serve as communication signals for inter- and intraspecies interactions between bacteria and fungi in the soil.
