The end of a productive day

It’s evening and the Sun is setting over the mountains surrounding the city of Grenoble – home to one of EMBL’s six sites – bathing the mountaintops in fiery red light.

The Picture of the Week, taken by Zuzanna Kaczmarska shows the lab she worked in after a long and busy day. Bottles stand everywhere; people who left earlier have dropped their lab coats on the chairs and even on the table. Pens and notes fill the spaces in between. The obligatory test tubes can also be found in the dozens.

To study the effect of commonly used drugs on bacterial envelopes, EMBL scientists applied a biochemical assay using a colour reaction. The deeper the red, the stronger the disruptive effect of the drug.
