It all started at the 21st International tRNA Workshop in Bangalore in December 2005 where Stephen Cusack first met Dickon Alley, Head of Discovery Biology at Anacor Pharmaceuticals in Palo Alto. That meeting would lead to a ten year collaboration and a new anti-TB drug...

It's #crystallography, but not as we know it: Time resolved crystallography can explore how proteins change shape over time. Read more about this technique at: https://news.embl.de/science/1608-time-resolved-crystallography/

+European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) May have to revise the old advice about picking your nose in public. Just shows why science needs to be open to serendipity.

Last week EMBL and the +Hubrecht Institute signed an agreement establishing the EMBL-Hubrecht Partnership for Stem Cell and Tissue Biology. We look forward to working more closely with Hubrecht to boost research in this exciting field and what that means for health and disease.

"I always had an inquisitive mind and was fascinated by chemistry, wanting to know the answers to questions such as: what is matter? What is an atom? What is a protein? And what is the role of chemistry in the life sciences?...Through collaborations and the desire to participate in interdisciplinary research in an international atmosphere a door was opened for me at EMBL-EBI . Here, I have the freedom to satisfy my curiosity in drug discovery and life sciences."

Grace Mugumbate was an EMBL interdisciplinary postdoc until April 2016 and is now a research scientist and data curator at EMBL-EBI

Quote of the day: "Six orders of magnitude is no big deal in genomics. You just wait a bit” – EMBL-EBI group leader Nick Goldman discusses DNA storage 
Modern archiving technology cannot keep up with the growing tsunami of bits. But nature may hold an answer to that problem already.

Story
Tagline
Europe's flagship laboratory for the life sciences.
Introduction
Mission
EMBL was set up in order to promote molecular biology across Europe, and to provide an attractive alternative to the United States as a workplace for Europe's leading young molecular biologists. To accomplish this, the cornerstones of EMBL's mission are to:
  • perform basic research in molecular biology
  • provide advanced training at all levels
  • offer services to scientists in our member states
  • develop new instruments and methods
  • actively engage in technology transfer.
EMBL's international PhD Programme has a student body of about 170. We also sponsors an active Science and Society programme.

Many scientific breakthroughs have been made at EMBL, most notably the first systematic genetic analysis of embryonic development in the fruit fly, by Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard and Eric Wieschaus, for which they were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1995.

About us
EMBL is an international research organisation with its main laboratory in Heidelberg (Germany), and four outstations in Hinxton, (UK) (the European Bioinformatics Institute, EBI), Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), and Monterotondo (Italy).
