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 was set up in order to promote molecular biology across Europe, and to create a centre of excellence for Europe's leading young molecular biologists. To accomplish this, EMBL has pursued five major missions:
- Basic Research in Molecular Biology
- Technology and Instrumentation
- Facilities and Services
- Teaching and Training
- Technology Transfer
