This article provides a reusable dataset describing detailed phenotypic and associated clinical parameters in n=303 clinical isolates of urinary Escherichia coli collected at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. De-identified clinical data collected with each isolate are detailed here and correlated to biofilm abundance and metabolomics data. Biofilm-abundance data were collected for each isolate under different in vitro conditions along with datasets quantifying biofilm abundance of each isolate under different conditions. Metabolomics data were collected from a subset of bacterial strains isolated from uncomplicated cases of cystitis or cases with no apparent symptoms accompanying colonization. For more insight, please see “Defining a Molecular Signature for Uropathogenic versus Urocolonizing Escherichia coli: The Status of the Field and New Clinical Opportunities” [1].
