EMBL has launched its first online courses focusing on research from laboratories at EMBL Heidelberg: An Introduction to Optogenetics and An Introduction to On-section CLEM (Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy). The courses combine different e-learning materials, ranging from how-to videos to interactive elements and exercises. More courses will become available in the coming months, covering other areas of EMBL expertise.

The free virtual courses are aimed at a range of audiences, from molecular biologists wanting to learn a particular technique to non-scientists interested in the latest discoveries and advances. They will feature some of the cutting-edge research and new technologies used at the different EMBL sites, and build on the success of EMBL-EBI’s bioinformatics online training platform.

If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered in a future e-learning course, or you have expertise to contribute, get in touch with the e-learning team at: support.e-learning@embl.de.

Scientists at EMBL Hamburg use specially designed mirrors to reflect and focus X-ray beams onto tiny crystals made of proteins or other biological molecules.

Two X-ray mirrors installed in the macromolecular crystallography beamline P14 at EMBL Hamburg. The mirrors are visible in the photo as dark rectangular crystal blocks, with two metal holders supporting the crystals in a stress-free position. The mirrors are inserted into a vacuum-compatible stainless steel vessel.
