EMBL: European Molecular Biology Lab

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory, one of the world's top research institutions, is dedicated to basic research in the molecular life sciences. EMBL is funded by public research monies from 20 member EU states including Ireland and the UK and an associate member state, Australia. Research at EMBL is conducted by approximately 85 independent groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. The cornerstones of EMBL's mission are: to perform basic research in molecular biology, to train scientists, students and visitors at all levels, to offer vital services to scientists in the member states, and to develop new instruments and methods in the life sciences, and technology transfer.
