Welcome

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics engages in cutting-edge research, training, and teaching to solve basic questions in the life sciences and to apply biological knowledge to critical medical, agricultural and environmental problems. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of scientists, teachers, and communicators by providing research mentorship and classroom instruction in biochemistry, bioinformatics, cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology and by initiating and participating in collaborative research across the Cornell campuses.
