Chemically-mediated interactions between organisms are pervasive at all levels of biological organization, from microbes to humans, across all biomes and habitats. Organisms find food and seek out mates, repel their enemies and fend off disease through the use of chemicals. Characterizing the molecules involved and understanding how they function in nature are fundamental goals of chemical ecologists; goals that are central to the understanding of life itself. The university-wide Chemical Ecology Group is committed to the enhancement of research and education on the mechanistic bases of ecological interactions at Cornell.
General Research Objectives
To accomplish these goals, the CCEG provides support for various activities, such as shared analytical equipment, journal clubs, various classes, workshops, and seminars, and an annual symposium. The weekly PIG discussion group has met every semester since fall 2004! (Group photo Fall 2014)
The CCEG was launched in the Spring of 2008, and we currently have many faculty and associate members.
