  • New way to limit antibiotic resistance spreading
    One of the biggest current threats to global health is the rise of multi-drug resistant bacteria, caused by the spreading of antibiotic resistance amongst them. In an attempt to help fight this thr...
  • Counting and locating chromosomal proteins during cell duplication
    Chromosomes are highly organised, dense arrangements of DNA, which form every time our cells duplicate themselves. Two protein complexes, Condensin I and II, are known to help organise DNA strands ...
  • Combining antibiotics changes their effectiveness
    Depending on the bacterial species, some combinations stop antibiotics from working to their full potential whilst others begin to defeat antibiotic resistance, report EMBL researchers and collabor...
  • Melting bacteria to decipher antibiotic resistance
    With antibiotic resistance spreading worldwide, there is a strong need for new technologies to study bacteria. EMBL researchers have adapted an existing technique to study the melting behaviour of ...
  • Understanding soil through its microbiome
    Soil is full of life, essential for nutrient cycling and carbon storage. To better understand how it functions, an international research team led by EMBL and the University of Tartu (Estonia) cond...
  • The importance of curiosity-based research
    In 1878, the Dutch chemist Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff gave a lecture titled 'Imagination in Science'. In it, van 't Hoff describes his research into the biographies of more than 200 famous scient...
  • Cohesin: a glue for DNA
    Before cell division begins, a newly replicated chromosome consists of two identical threadlike strands that are joined together. Responsible for holding these sister chromatids together is a ring-...
  • PhenoMeNal: an online portal for metabolomics
    An international collaboration between EMBL's European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) and 13 other partners has made large-scale metabolomics analyses easier with the launch of PhenoMeNal. Thi...
  • Ageing is visible in the way cells use glucose
    Getting older means a few more wrinkles and grey hairs. Deep down, ageing also entails a functional decline of your cells and especially of stem cells. A research team from EMBL and Heidelberg Univ...
  • Understanding cell identity by creating maps of genetic networks
    As part of a series marking the 10th anniversary of the European Research Council, ERC grantees Wolfgang Huber - EMBL group leader - and Oliver Stegle, group leader at EMBL and the German Cancer Re...
  • Time-resolved X-ray crystallography simplified
    An international collaboration has developed a new method to observe the molecular foundations of biology, with the help of beamline P14 at EMBL Hamburg. The new 'hit-and-return' method simplifies ...
  • Discovering new enzymes just got easier
    What if you could make plants produce biodegradable plastic? Make textiles without polluting the environment? Produce innovative new food ingredients? EMBL-EBI and Biocatalysts are working on it. B...


  • Metabolism matters
    Life requires energy. The strategy a cell uses to obtain that energy can influence not only how fast it multiplies but also a variety of other processes, like which of its genes are turned on. This...
  • Structure of key system for TB infection revealed
    The Wilmanns group at EMBL together with scientists from across Europe reveal the overall architecture of an assembly of proteins known as Type VII secretion systems found in a group of bacteria wh...
  • Important function of genetic sequence our ancestors assimilated from a virus
    DNA from viruses that once infected our ancestors millions of years ago have remained in our genome to this day. In a study published today in eLife, EMBL scientists found that activation of one cl...
  • Developing a data coordination platform for the Human Cell Atlas
    The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) has announced financial support for the Human Cell Atlas, which is using sequencing technology to redefine every cell in the body. Funding and engineering suppo...
  • Open imaging data for biology
    A picture may be worth a thousand words, but only if you understand what you are looking at. The life sciences rely increasingly on 2D, 3D and 4D image data, but its staggering heterogeneity and si...
