Training & Outreach

Training & Outreach

Between 2008 and 2018, the Centre for Comparative Genomics and Evolutionary Bioinformatics (CGEB) trained >220 undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research associates from across North America and around the world. ICG carries on with CGEB’s mission by providing a research and training environment that is interdisciplinary, collaborative, inclusive, and collegial. We are recognized internationally for what we do and how we do it.

As part of its commitment to training and mentorship, ICG (i) runs several journal clubs, (ii) hosts a seminar series with internal and external speakers, and (iii) engages in outreach activities aimed at promoting science literacy and providing opportunities for young Nova Scotians to learn about careers in STEM.
