EMBL (7)

Partner 7 European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL; http://www.embl.org/) was established in 1974 and is supported by over twenty countries. EMBL is a centre of excellence for research in molecular biology. Established in 1996, EMBL-EBI (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/) is an outstation of the EMBL and has a long-standing mission to collect, organise and make available databases for biomolecular science. Headed by Prof. Dame Janet Thornton, the EMBL-EBI makes available a collection of databases along with tools to search, download and analyse their content. These databases include nucleotide sequences (European Nucleotide Archive), protein sequences (UniProt), structures (Macromolecular Structure Database), genome annotation (Ensembl), gene expression information (ArrayExpress), molecular interactions (Intact) and pathways (Reactome). Connected to these are linking and descriptive data resources such as protein motifs (InterPro), ontologies and many others. In many of these efforts the EMBL-EBI is a European node in global data-sharing agreements.
