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.

For the Fall 2021 semester, Verge will be held in-person when possible, with refreshments, or via zoom. For zoom Verge meetings, the webinar link will be shared via the Verge-L email list and may be requested by emailing Charlotte Williams or Carolynn Steele-Law. Please also contact Carolynn or Charlotte if you need accomodations to particpate in this event.

TIME CHANGE: The Verge meets from 11am to noon on the second Tuesday of each month.
