CGEB is a Dalhousie University Centre that gathers ‘omics’ data, develops computational tools, and trains the next generation of scientists to conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research into how living organisms evolved, diversify, interact, and impact the biosphere and human health.
CGEB was established in 2008 and is comprised of researchers in four Dalhousie Faculties: Medicine, Science, Computer Science and Agriculture. As of January 2020, the Centre is comprised of 27 faculty members, 1 adjunct member, 2 honorary members, 13 staff and 115 trainees.
Research carried out by CGEB scientists includes:
