Research at EMBL-EBI is carried out both in groups devoted solely to research and in some service teams. Most research groups collaborate closely with experimentalists, and some generate experimental data themselves.
Located on the Wellcome Genome Campus just south of Cambridge in the UK, EMBL-EBI is at the centre of one of the highest concentrations of technical and scientific expertise in the world. We are part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, which has a well-integrated experimental and computational research programme on its five sites.
EMBL researchers publish regularly in top-tier journals, with 40% of papers in the top 5% of journals in biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology (2012–2014). Four EMBL papers are among the top 100 most highly cited papers ever – one in the top 10 and two co-authored by EMBL-EBI researchers.
