The European Bioinformatics Institute is part of EMBL, Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences. EMBL-EBI provides freely available data from life science experiments covering the full spectrum of molecular biology.
While we are best known for our provision of bioinformatics services, about 20% of our institute is devoted to basic research. Our extensive training programme helps researchers in academia and industry to make the most of the incredible amount of data being produced every day in life science experiments. EMBL-EBI provides a unique environment for bioinformatics research, and our broad palette of research interests compliments our data resources.
In the era of personal genomics, our research is increasingly translational and related to problems of direct significance to medicine and the environment.
