IPD -- the Immuno Polymorphism Database

What you can do:
Search for information on polymorphic genes in the immune system.
Highlights:
  • IPD is a set of databases related to the study of polymorphic genes in the immune system.
  • The IPD project works with specialist groups or nomenclature committees who provide and curate individual sections before they are submitted to IPD for online publication.
  • The IPD project stores all the data in a set of related databases. IPD currently consists of four databases: IPD-KIR, contains the allelic sequences of Killer-cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors, IPD-MHC, is a database of sequences of the Major Histocompatibility Complex of different species; IPD-human platelet antigens, alloantigens expressed only on platelets and IPD-ESTDAB, which provides access to the European Searchable Tumour cell-line database, a cell bank of immunologically characterised melanoma cell lines.
  • The data is currently available online from the website and ftp directory.
