Join UK Biobank at ASHG 2022

Join us for a stimulating series of talks about how UK Biobank, a large-scale biomedical database and research resource, is enabling scientific discoveries into the genetic and non-genetic determinants of human disease. Presentations will focus on how data on genomics, biomarkers (including metabolomics and proteomics) and multi-modal imaging are enabling research to advance our understanding of the treatment and prevention of disease. You will also get the chance to understand how UK Biobank’s unique access model can enable your research goals through accessing over 25 petabytes of data in the cloud from anywhere in the world via the UK Biobank Research Analysis Platform (RAP).
