The European Molecular Biology Laboratory is an internationally renowned research institution, with stations in Germany (Heidelberg and Hamburg), the United Kingdom (Hinxton), France (Grenoble) and Italy (Monterotondo). Heidelberg serves as EMBL's headquarters, hosting a range of groups with a broad diversity of research interests, exploring new frontiers in basic molecular biology. EMBL Heidelberg has an extensive and growing bioinformatics community: currently more than 40% of researchers at the laboratory spend the majority of their time on computational work. Collaboration between these computational scientists and those at the bench is one of the key strengths of EMBL Heidelberg. It encourages the development of new research methods, innovation in new technology and software, and the establishment of resources and services for the wider scientific community. Scientific partnerships are formed between different research groups and across EMBL outstations and other leading institutions. This pioneering approach can have great impact in translational research, such as in the foundation of the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit (MMP), which connects molecular research directly with medicine.
