A unique environment for research
About 20% of EMBL-EBI is devoted to collaborative, investigator-led research using computational approaches to unravel the secrets of life. Our research is carried out both in groups devoted solely to research and in some of the larger service teams that have associated research activities. All researchers have computational approaches as their major focus, but most also collaborate closely with experimentalists and even generate experimental data themselves.
Increasingly, much of our work is related to problems of direct medical significance and with the emergence of personal genomes we are very conscious of the need to contribute to the translation of the new knowledge into medicine and the environment. This process is just beginning and will provide many challenges to computational biologists over the coming years.
EMBL-EBI scientists publish regularly in prestigious scientific journals. All of our papers and book chapters are listed here by year, according to first publication date. This list also includes PhD theses by participants in the EMBL International PhD Programme.
