Summary

While European molecular biologists struggle to shore up support for the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), their Pacific Rim colleagues are moving ahead rapidly with their own plans for multinational cooperation in the discipline. Organizers say they are encouraged by early signs of widespread support but that it is too early to declare victory.
