The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is Europe's esteemed lab network for research in molecular biology. EMBL is funded by 20 member states an one associate member. EMBL operates in 5 sites, the main laboratory is in Heidelberg, Germany. Additionally, EMBL manages the European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton, Grenoble, Hamburg and Monterotondo near Rome, Italy. Research at EMBL covers the entire spectrum of research in molecular biology. The mission of EMBL is to train scientists at all levels, perform basic molecular biology research and to create new instruments and methods in the broad field of life science and technology development. EMBL has a PhD program and currently has 170 candidates in the program. EMBL publishes updates news about their current research and welcomes the public and media to visit or connect with them about their work.

How herpes seizes proteins' means of production

The Graham and Crump groups at the University of Cambridge and the Svergun Group at EMBL Hamburg have discovered a mechanism by which the herpes simplex virus takes control of the molecular machinery of human cells. Their ...

New microscopy technique makes deep in vivo brain imaging possible

A pioneering technique developed by the Prevedel Group at EMBL allows neuroscientists to observe live neurons deep inside the brain – or any other cell hidden within an opaque tissue. The technique is based on two state-of-the-art ...

The secret life of baby octopuses

Some of the most amazing creatures live in the deep blue sea. Cuttlefish, squids and octopuses, for example. These soft-bodied cephalopods have a strikingly sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, three hearts, and ...

The Spatial Mouse Atlas: New insights into cell fate

High-resolution gene expression maps have been combined with single-cell genomics data to create a new resource for studying how cells adopt different identities during mammalian development. The Spatial Mouse Atlas is the ...

New insights into Salmonella's survival strategies

Cells fight microbial invaders by engulfing them into membrane sacs—hostile environments in which pathogens are rapidly destroyed. However, the pathogen Salmonella enterica, which grows and reproduces inside cells, has ...

Artificial intelligence makes great microscopes better than ever

To observe the swift neuronal signals in a fish brain, scientists have started to use a technique called light-field microscopy, which makes it possible to image such fast biological processes in 3D. But the images are often ...

Lighting the way to folding next-level origami

Origami may sound more like art than science, but a complex folding pathway that proteins use to determine their shape has been harnessed by molecular biologists, enabling them to build some of the most complex synthetic ...
