Predictive Microbiology Information Portal (PMIP)

PMIP provides access to predictive models for foodborne pathogens, relevant regulatory policies and guidelines, and microbial data related to pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms in food products.

The models in the Predictive Microbiology Information Portal are mainly from the Pathogen Modeling Program (PMP) of the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) - Eastern Regional Research Center (ERRC) , and currently 15 models are in the portal. The main sources of rules/regulations are links to the USDA - Food Safety and Inspection Service and Food and Drug Administration websites. The microbial growth data are from Combase, which contains about 40,000 data points. It is a relational database that is jointly developed and maintained by the Food Research Institute of UK, USDA-ARS, and the Center of Excellence for Food Safety, Australia. The portal provides a searchable function that the users can use to obtain specific information that is of interest to them. The tutorial provides brief instructions and examples on how to navigate the portal and retrieve necessary information. The PMIP links users to numerous and diverse resources associated with models (PMP), databases (ComBase) , regulatory requirements, and food safety principles.
