The International Pseudomonas Consortium Database

Linking metadata, genomics and human health


IPCD is a repository of thousands of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from the environment (soil and water), plants, animals and human infections, with a strong emphasis on Cystic Fibrosis. It was created for metadata analyses linking bacterial phenotype, genotype and clinical data, with a clear focus on the development of prognostic approaches to treating Cystic Fibrosis infections.


IPCD currently contains 2637 isolates. Draft genomes have been produced for 2637 of them.
