UKB-PPP data: UK Biobank Pharma Proteomics Project

Dear Team,

Are we going to integrate UKB-PPP data to the OT platform?

We are still trying to get access to the UKB-PPP summary stats via AstraZeneca.

If anyone has access to the summary stats and it’s willing to share them with us, it will be of great value to the community.

Hi, @ochoa ,

I found a project named UKB-PPP in the synapse. Maybe you can try to download the data from there.

Here is the introduction from the project wiki:

The UK Biobank Pharma Proteomics Project (UKB-PPP) is a collaboration between the UK Biobank (UKB) and thirteen biopharmaceutical companies characterising the plasma proteomic profiles of 54,219 UKB participants. As part of a collaborative analysis across the thirteen UKB-PPP partners, we conducted comprehensive protein quantitative trait loci (pQTL) mapping of 2,923 proteins that identifies 14,287 primary genetic associations, of which 85% are newly discovered, in addition to ancestry-specific pQTL mapping in non-Europeans. We identify independent secondary associations in 87% of cis and 30% of trans loci, expanding the catalogue of genetic instruments for downstream analyses.

Hope this helps.


We are still trying to access the data. Synapse currently gives us the next message:

Due to unprecedented volume of requests to download this dataset and the subsequent traffic it has brought to the platform, we have had to implement first-serve queue for data download. To be added to the queue, please provide a brief description of your intended use of the data. Include your name and institutional affiliation.

If anybody has access to the data (perhaps in a cloud provider) and it’s willing to share it with us please contact us.

It might be not so easy to get the data, all the authors are from industries. Please try to contact the corresponding author: Dr. Christopher D. Whelan,
