Last week, the governing council of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, agreed in principle to meet the costs of a multimillion-dollar pay claim by staff members dating back to 1995. The council also tentatively resolved to cover a shortfall next year in the infrastructure budget of the European Bioinformatics Institute near Cambridge, U.K., caused by a recent decision by the European Union to stop funding its share of the infrastructure costs for the EBI and several other European research facilities. Britain's Medical Research Council has also come to EBI's aid with an offer to loan the center stopgap funds.
