UK BioBank Data Repository

DNA

Research IT have downloaded the UK BioBank Genotyping and Imputation Data Release (data for all 500,000 participants in UK Biobank) but we are currently awaiting the decryption keys from the UK BioBank.  The keys are expected to be released at the end of June 2017 and we will make the dataset available to researchers as soon as possible after this.

The datasets will be available through the Research Data Storage service as a storage share that can be mapped to desktop PCs or accessible on central compute platforms such as the CSF. An individual research project’s mapping files should be stored in your own storage shares and used to access the main dataset. Further details on how to access the central copy of the full release will be made available as soon as possible on this blog and on our Twitter feed.  If you have any questions then please contact us.
