The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) shares data from life science experiments, performs basic research in computational biology and offers an extensive user training programme, supporting researchers in academia and industry. We are part of EMBL, Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences. 

Understanding how genetics affects the health of humans, plants and animals is essential to advances in disease prevention, food security and biodiversity. We collaborate with scientists and engineers all over the world, and provide the infrastructure needed to share data openly in the life sciences.  We develop databases, tools and software that make it possible to align, verify and visualise the diverse data produced in publicly funded research, and make that information freely available to all. But tracking and measuring the impact of these efforts can be a challenge. Here, we provide examples of how our users in different sectors perceive our value to their work, and report on how we meet the needs of researchers throughout the world.
