The UKB node is a specialised DPUK node. An adapter has been built to enable XNAT to provide a common user interface for users wanting to access the UKB image store, hiding the command line interface (CLI) from the end-users that otherwise must be used for this purpose. The solution also allows users to execute pipelines against the image dataset they have been approved to use, meaning that the pipelines can be brought to the data rather than the data being brought to the pipeline.
The UKB XNAT Node is available to anyone with an approved UKB project by accessing the following URL https://ukbiobank.dpuk.org. More information about the imaging biobank fields that the DPUK node can provide access to can be found as a biobank category.
