Latest European Molecular Biology Laboratory Stories
Scientists discover that sugar tags on nuclear proteins have an important developmental function.
Recycling is important not only on a global scale, but also at the cellular level, since key molecules tend to be available in limited numbers. This means a cell needs to have efficient recycling mechanisms.
Scientists in Europe announced Wednesday that they had discovered how the flu virus is able to overtake cells and use them to duplicate itself.
Researchers unravel how the very first eyes in evolution might have worked and how they guide the swimming of marine plankton towards light.
The first few hours of an embryo developing were caught with the help of a new high-powered microscope.
Researchers from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, and the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) in Hinxton, UK, have revealed new insights into how sex chromosomes are regulated
New mouse model grants insight into the genetic and molecular mechanisms underpinning acute myeloid leukemia
Scientists have gotten their best look ever at interactions inside human skin cells, finding a Velcro-like setup that links them and makes skin strong while also supple.
The world's three leading public repositories for DNA and RNA sequence information have reached 100 gigabases [100,000,000,000 bases; the 'letters' of the genetic code] of sequence.
Microtubules need a helping hand to find chromosomes in dividing egg cells, scientists have discovered. Although it was generally accepted that microtubules act alone as the cellular ropes to pull chromosomes into place, a new study by researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) shows that this is not the case.
