Cornell offers numerous excellent courses in comparative and population genomics and related disciplines. These courses are offered through a variety of different departments, but an UP-TO-DATE (1-21-2013) SUMMARY OF RELEVANT COURSES is available here as a PDF file . Additional information on these and other courses offered by a department in a given semester can be found in the on-line Courses of Study catalog, and in the Time/Room Roster for a given semester. 3CPG will also be sponsoring short workshops on topics of particular relevance to 3CPG members (more information to be posted soon).
There are several journal clubs on campus that may be of interest to the 3CPG community. Below is an incomplete list.
- Center for Vertebrate Genomics 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. (contact: Charlotte Williams, cw25 at cornell.edu)
- Topics in Population Genetics and Genomics (contact: Alon Keinan; ak735 at cornell.edu; also run as BTRY 6890) [spring only]
- Evolutionary Genetics journal club (meets Fridays at 2:45pm in 202 Biotech for Spring 2012. Contact: Rich Meisel, rpm16 at cornell.edu and check out: http://evgen-journalclub.pbworks.com/ )
- "Non-model Genomics" to meet during Fall 2012 on Friday's from 1:30 - 2:30 pm in Comstock B106 with an option for graduate students to take it for 1 credit (BioEE7600, Kelly Zamudio & Dan Ilut instructors).
