Vertebrate Genomics Club, a.k.a "The Verge"

The Center for Vertebrate Genomics (CVG) was created to enhance research and education in vertebrate genetics and functional genomics at Cornell University. As part of that overall goal, the CVG aims to foster research interactions amongst vertebrate geneticists and other faculty. The monthly "Verge" meetings were started to increase awareness among CVG members of the different research programs that currently exist on campus, to share up-to-date information from conferences and the scientific literature, and to encourage interactions between CVG members.

The "Verge" meets at Noon on the second Tuesday of each month. Lunch will be provided at 11:45 AM.

Organizers: John Schimenti and Paul Soloway
If you need accommodations to participate in this event, please contact May Lovelace.
