Discovery that Connects

From fundamental insights to better plants, sustainably grown, serving the world

Distinguished Speakers in Genome Biology – Spring 2019

-Magdalen Lindeberg

As part of Cornell’s Genome Biology Initiative, five scientists involved in plant-related research will be visiting campus during spring semester 2019.



Genome Biology is one of seven strategic discipline areas targeted by the Provost’s Radical Collaboration Initiative, directed at reaching across disciplines to build a research community where integration of deep expertise points the way toward new innovation. The Genome Biology Task Force is composed of 15 faculty members from across Cornell, including Adam Bogdanove in SIPS. A top priority of the 2018 Task Force Report concerns recruitment of new genomics faculty with the potential for broad game-changing impact, enrichment of existing areas of strength, and synergy with other Cornell initiatives.  Faculty in non-plant related fields will also be visiting campus as part of the initiative.
