In this picture, the first snowflakes have fallen on the Vercors Mountains, right behind the EMBL Grenoble building, and an almost full moon is showing up during a sunny morning. An inspiring combination to start the day!
Activities at EMBL Grenoble focus on structural biology research and services. The research groups at EMBL Grenoble focus mainly on RNA biology and infection biology: in particular, the structural biology of protein–RNA complexes involved in gene expression and host–pathogen interactions. The latter includes work on important human viral, bacterial, and parasite pathogens. In addition, three technology-focused teams develop innovative automated structural biology technologies and make these available as services to the broader scientific community. These technologies relate to protein crystallisation; structure determination by X-ray crystallography, small-angle scattering, and cryo-electron microscopy; and ligand screening for drug development.
