CVG Journal Club

The CVG Journal Club holds discussions of current articles drawn from broad, interdisciplinary topics which describe useful approaches, tools, and resources in genomics. Graduate students and post-docs in CVG labs will choose the topics/articles and lead the discussion. All CVG members and lab members are encouraged to attend. Meetings will be once per month, informal (and even fun!!), with snacks and drinks provided.

Faculty Advisor: Praveen Sethupathy
Student Organizers 2019-2020: Erica Shu and Jon Villanueva

COVID-19 Update (March 13):
In alignment with Cornell University's shift to online instruction, the CVG Journal Club will be held via Zoom meeting. The meeting link will be shared via the Verge-L email list and may be requested by emailing the organizers or
Charlotte Williams.

CVG Journal Club meets the last Thursday each month from 4:30-5:30pm.
