European Molecular Biology Laboratory



Beskrivning av infrastrukturen

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the world's leading research institutions, and Europe's flagship laboratory for the life sciences. EMBL is an intergovernmental organisation specialising in basic research in the life sciences, funded by public research monies from more than 20 member states. Research at EMBL emphasises experimental analysis at multiple levels of biological organisation, from the molecule to the organism, as well as computational biology, bioinformatics and systems biology. Research is conducted by more than 80 independent groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. EMBLs 1600 employees from many nations represent scientific disciplines including biology, physics, chemistry and computer science. Training is available at multiple levels: PhD students, postdocs and visiting scientists. Services provided by EMBL include: core biomolecular databases and bioinformatics tools, particularly at EMBL-EBI, the provision of beamlines, instrumentation and high-throughput technology for structural biology at the Hamburg and Grenoble oustations, Core Facilities, which provide cost-effective and efficient access to methods and technologies that are expensive to set up or maintain, or that require considerable expense.
