The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a molecular biology research institution supported by 20 European countries and Australia as associate member state. EMBL was created in 1974 and is an intergovernmental organisation funded by public research money from its member states. Research at EMBL is conducted by approximately 85 independent groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. The Laboratory operates from five sites: the main Laboratory in Heidelberg, and Outstations in Hinxton (the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI)), Grenoble, Hamburg, and Monterotondo near Rome.
