Longitudinal Multi'omics of the Human Microbiome in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBDMDB)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), affect millions of individuals worldwide. The Integrative Human Microbiome Project (HMP2) characterized a total of 132 CD, UC and non-IBD patients across a year to generate longitudinal molecular profiles of host and microbial activity during this time frame. A total of 2,965 stool, biopsy and blood specimens were produced and analyzed from this cohort. A comprehensive view of the gut microbiome's functional dysbiosis during IBD activity was derived from analyzed samples each providing a different window into disease activity. The study's resources, results and data are available through the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Multi'omics Database (IBDMDB) provide the most comprehensive description of host and microbial activities in IBD to date.
