Request Sample and Data

The UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative represents a unique, diverse collection of clinical and genomic data from patients across the UCLA Health system. As of  May 4, 2022, more than 150,300 patients across UCLA Health have been consented. The overall opt-in rate is 68.4%. Over 53,680 samples have been successfully genotyped and uploaded to the cloud for researchers’ access.

Data Request

  • De-identified clinical and genotype data

De-identified clinical and genotype data from UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative patients are available for researchers upon request at no cost. This data can be accessed via the Discovery Data Repository (DDR)* in the Azure cloud. Raw plink files are linked to the clinical data by a sample-id. To request access to DDR submit a ticket here.

*Discovery Data Repository (DDR) is built upon a limited data set containing de-identified electronic health record data. It includes a selection of tools (Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Jupyter, Tableau), data sets (clinical data, genomics, waveform, devices and other Internet of Things) and technologies (Azure Platform, Linux, Citrix) to support growing data discovery requirements for UCLA Health Sciences and affiliated researchers across the UCLA campus.

  • De-identified UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative genotype data

De-identified UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative genotype data (VCF files), may be accessed in GenomicsDB*, a repository for genomic data, via Scala (Zeppelin). To access the data, please email - Will Weil at [email protected] or Maryam Ariannejad at [email protected]. If you would like to review the Clinical Data Dictionary, click here.  

*GenomicsDB is an Open Source Application that Stores Data in Sparse Arrays.
