Join us in our new editorial theme as we ask how everything began
Some of the most fascinating problems in science involve questions about origins. How did the things we see around us come to be the way they are? How did we end up like this? How did all this stuff happen?
That’s one of the reasons why we’ve chosen Origins as our latest editorial theme. But we’re also interested in the idea of origins more broadly. EMBL is a big place, full of people with diverse stories and diverse origins – not only in terms of the places they come from, but the paths that brought them here and the influences that drive them. We also want to celebrate EMBL as a place where many discoveries and ideas have their origin.
Below you can find links to the articles in the Origins theme. You can also join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #EMBLorigins. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
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.
