20th Anniversary - photo gallery

Blast from the past

Thanks to everyone who has donated their photos of the EBI over the past 20 years! Special thanks go to Graham Cameron, who gave us so many of his photos in 2012.

Do you have photos of EMBL or EMBL-EBI that you'd be willing to share with us? We'd love to see them! Send them by email to comms@ebi.ac.uk
