Development of fully automated macromolecular crystallography

Over the past two decades, automation has been introduced in macromolecular crystallography at a rapid pace, revolutionising both crystallisation procedures and the use of beamlines.

Technopolis report

EMBL’s experimental services deliver substantial value to Europe by delivering scientific services and thereby enabling researchers to conduct novel and demanding experiments that could not be easily achieved at a purely national level, an independent review found.

The global consultancy Technopolis Group, specialising in research and innovation policy, conducted a survey and analysis of external (non-EMBL) users of EMBL’s experimental services. The survey aimed to identify whether users perceived scientific, technological, societal and economic benefits as a result of utilising the experimental services at EMBL Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Heidelberg, and Rome.
