Because the scope and knowledge calls for of the UK Biobank biomedical database will get larger, we’re serving to UK Biobank to fulfill its audacious ambitions.
The newest enchancment is a brand new cloud-based Analysis Evaluation Platform (RAP), which is able to exponentially improve the dimensions and accessibility of the world’s most complete biomedical database. Watch the brief explainer video to be taught extra.
Since 2006, UK Biobank has been on a mission to unleash the imaginations of the worldwide analysis neighborhood to go additional and enhance human well being. This challenge is one other instance of their dedication to democratizing entry to this wealthy, multi-dimensional knowledge useful resource.
DNAnexus shares this imaginative and prescient. We perceive that delivering on UK Biobank’s promise of bettering human well being requires overcoming the challenges round scale and variety of datasets, the necessity for built-in multimodal analytics and complete evaluation instruments, stringent controls on knowledge safety and regulatory compliance, and the important want for collaboration globally and throughout institutional firewalls.
That’s why we partnered with UK Biobank to construct a scalable, safe, and collaborative Analysis Evaluation Platform to speed up the pace and scale of health-related analysis.
Enabled by DNAnexus know-how and powered by Amazon Internet Companies (AWS), RAP gives authorised researchers with the power to entry and analyze the 11 petabytes of knowledge within the UK Biobank database from wherever on the planet.
It additionally allows simpler collaboration between researchers inside the identical group, or on the opposite aspect of the planet. Customers can leverage a priceless library of instruments for analyzing genomic and scientific knowledge.
And because the UK Biobank grows, the platform is designed to develop with it, a significant requirement because the useful resource is predicted to surpass 40 petabytes of knowledge by 2025. To place that quantity into perspective, it will take over a century of steady viewing to devour 40 petabyte’s price of excessive definition 4k motion pictures!
We’re proud to associate with UK Biobank on this landmark initiative that mixes our main biomedical informatics platform and perception instruments with UK Biobank’s genomics and scientific datasets. This world collaboration brings us one step nearer to conducting our imaginative and prescient of democratizing knowledge entry to drive improvements in analysis that profoundly affect affected person lives.
