The Biotechnology Building
Faculty in the Department of Molecular Biology Genetics form the core of the Graduate Field of Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology. The Department of Molecular Biology Genetics, along with the Cornell Center for Advanced Technology, is housed in the Biotechnology Building, which is located on the central campus. The Biotechnology Building is the largest single research building on the Cornell campus, housing approximately 36 faculty, 50 postdoctoral and research associates, and 100 graduate students. The building also contains a number of modern research service facilities including those for protein and nucleic acid synthesis and sequencing, fluorescence and electron microscopic imaging, and x-ray and NMR spectroscopy.

One of the strong resources that the Department has to offer is the knowledge of the seminar speakers that visit on a weekly basis throughout the academic year.
Speakers visit MBG from around the world and from sister departments on campus. Seminars are a valuable way to learn what top scientists around the world are studying. Aditionally, they offer a wonderful opportunity to make valuable connections to colleagues in the university.
Keller Reading Room
Located on the ground floor of the Biotechnology Building (Rm. G09), the Keller Reading Room offers a quiet and beautiful setting to read the latest journals. Reference materials and a small number of older journals that cannot be found on line are also located here, as well as a photocopier. A computer with current contents is available for literature searches. Cornell has an extensive collection of journals that are available on line. Please note that material is not to be taken from this room.
