Max Planck Institute triples ELN orders

The Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology has trebled the number of its IDBS E-WorkBook licenses.

Extending the use of E-WorkBook to include pure biology as well as molecular biology, the institute, which has been using E-WorkBook since June 2006, upgraded to the latest release of IDBS' (ELN), E-WorkBook 8.

Dr Elke Mueller of the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology said: 'We are pleased to be working with IDBS and applying the benefits of an ELN to our research. Of particular interest is the ability to quickly search information and make it available to other researchers. This gives scientists more time at the bench and less time searching mountains of paper.'

Currently engaged in numerous programmes, the institute's research includes various high throughput screening strategies as well as the analysis of molecular and cellular mechanisms of infection, using pathogenic bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori and Salmonella, for the development of novel preventative and therapeutic measures against infection.
