Welcome to 3CPG
The Cornell Center for Comparative and Population Genomics (3CPG) is an interdisciplinary center established to foster research, education, and outreach in comparative and population genomics at Cornell University. The center currently has 30 affiliated faculty members from more than a dozen departments at Cornell. These faculty have interests spanning the basic and applied sciences, and applications in agriculture, medicine, and environmental science, but they share a commitment to a comparative and evolutionary genomic approach to the study of living systems.
3CPG serves as a key source of communication and collaboration to faculty, staff, students and postdocs across campus, and also hosts an outstanding 3CPG Seminar Series each year. To receive emails regarding seminars, workshops, resources, and news relevant to comparative and population genomics at Cornell (including those in other seminar series on campus), email Evolgen_Seminars-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org with a blank subject line and the single word "join" in the body of the message.
Workshops: The Cornell Bioinformatics Facility (formerly know as the Computational Biology Service Unit (CBSU), offers with, 3CPG support, a wide variety of excellent short workshops including bioinformatics, genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS), Linux, use of the cloud-like CBSU/3CPG Bio-computing Lab computers for large-scale genome analyses, RNA-Seq, and reference genome based sequence variation detection. A list of upcoming and past workshops is available here. We welcome suggestions for future workshops (email your suggestion). Additionally, 3CPG co-sponsored the Population Genomics of Nonmodel Organisms Workshop held at Cornell July 23-24, 2013. All materials (including videos of lectures) from that workshop are available here.
Genome Science at Cornell. In addition to comparative and population genomics, Cornell has broad strengths in genomics, including functional, medical, vertebrate, invertebrate, microbial and plant genomics.
