MIGAL – Galilee Research Institute is an applied research organization specializing in the fields of biotechnology, environmental and agriculture sciences. MIGAL was established in 1979 in the city of Kiryat Shmona to create a scientific research core facility and knowledge-based economic generator at Israel's northern periphery. MIGAL's mission is to maintain and expand its innovative scientific research activities, and extend the economic and societal benefits of those activities throughout the Galilee. MIGAL is highly unique, serving not only as a center of scientific excellence, but also a hub of outreach to industry, agriculture and education for Israel’s northern periphery.


Aiming to create a self-sustaining knowledge-based economy in the upper Galilee, MIGAL consolidated all of its R&D, applied research and translational research activities under one virtual entity which operates as a technology accelerator. The accelerator is a target oriented organization, focusing on the necessary actions required to move projects to an optimal objective. It takes benefit of existing facilities and infrastructure in MIGAL to achieve its goals.

Aromatic ring deformation has long been postulated as a mechanism for tuning the absorption spectra of chlorophylls in their natural protein environment.
Dror Noy's lab provided the first direct demonstration of such a mechanism in the water-soluble chlorophyll binding protein (WSCP) from Brassicaceae. Their work is published in and highlighted on the cover of Angewandte Chemie International Edition (10.1002/anie.201512001).
