The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (MB&G) shares a leading role in research and teaching in modern biology at Cornell University. The research and teaching interests of the faculty include fundamental, as well as medically relevant, problems in molecular biology, genetics, genomics, population genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, development and macromolecular structure.
The department has a state-of-the-art facility with individual laboratories and core research facilities. Students are encouraged to carry out independent research projects under faculty supervision. MB&G faculty play key roles in life sciences initiatives that involve genomics and cell and molecular biology.
