Ensure that you are listed as a Principal Investigator (PI) or collaborator on a UK Biobank-approved access application.

If you already have a DNAnexus account, log into the UK Biobank Research Analysis Platform using your existing username and password.

If you don’t already have a UKB-RAP account, you’ll need to create one. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the UK Biobank Research Analysis Platform. Click Create an Account.
  2. Fill out the Create New Account form, then click Create Account. Note that in selecting a username, you don’t need to use the same username you use on the UK Biobank AMS.
  3. You'll receive an email with a link to click, to activate your account. Click the link.
  4. Log into the Platform.

Complete your profile, then click Access Platform.

Once you have a UKB-RAP account. you need to connect it to your AMS account. You need do this only once.

  1. The first time you access the UKB-RAP, you’ll see a prompt to Connect Your Account to UK Biobank.
  2. Read the Terms of Service, then click Accept & Continue.
  3. You'll be redirected to the AMS. Log into the AMS.
  4. Your AMS and UKB-RAP accounts are now connected.

You'll be redirected once again, this time back to the UK-RAP. You can now use the Platform.

Note that:

  • ‌An AMS account may be associated to exactly one UKB-RAP account
  • A Research Analysis Platform account may be associated to exactly one AMS account
