The Graduate Field of Genetics, Genomics and Development (GGD) at Cornell University
engages in cutting-edge training to study mechanisms that underlie
inheritance, genome organization, development, disease, population structure, and evolution.

The Graduate Field of Genetics, Genomics and Development

The explosion of genome-scale data and advances in imaging and genome engineering technologies over the last decade offers unprecedented opportunities to understand and apply fundamental principles of genetics, genomics and development.

Our graduate community consists of committed and enthusiastic researchers who are expanding knowledge in genetics, genomics and development, and educating and mentoring others to become skilled in scientific inquiry.  One way in which they do this is by participating in the GGD Graduate Student Association, which organizes both academic and social events.

Our nurturing environment combined with rigorous training and guidance prepares students for successful careers as independent research scientists.
