Molecular communication is a paradigm inspired by biological systems, where chemical signals encode and transmit information. MoSK (Molecule Shift Keying) is proposed as a modulation technique that utilizes different signaling molecules to encode digital information. MoSK mimics natural molecular communication by leveraging the diversity of signaling molecules and their specific roles. Experimental testbeds have been developed using microfluidic systems, droplet-based platforms, and biological cells to validate MoSK. A prototype platform for MoSK implementation is presented, including a transmitter with infusion and selection valves, and a fluorescence-based receiver. The receiver detects and decodes fluorescence signals emitted by Graphene Quantum Dots (GQDs), which are water-soluble and fluorescent molecular messengers. The receiver acquires the fluorescence signals of blue-GQDs and cyan-GQDs, and the performance of the system can be evaluated in terms of synchronization, detection threshold, and symbol recognition using the provided dataset.


Each file contains the signal related to 5 molecular messenger releases consisting of blue-GQDs or cyan-GQDs. The sequence of successive releases is given in the file MoSK-sequence.txt.

The first row of the file contains the value of the emission wavelength,cexpressed in nanometers.

The first column of the file contains the receive time value, expressed in seconds.

The other values represent the emission intensities, expressed in arbitrary units.
