We have conducted a 3-mm molecular-line survey towards 570 high-mass star-forming

clumps, using the Mopra telescope. The sample is selected from the 10,000 clumps identified

by the ATLASGAL survey and includes all of the most important embedded evolutionary

stages associated with massive star formation, classified into five distinct categories (quiescent,

protostellar, young stellar objects, HII regions and photo-dominated regions). The observations

were performed in broadband mode with frequency coverage of 85.2 to 93.4 GHz

and a velocity resolution of ?0.9 km s
