Graduate student training is an important component of ConGen. Students from Columbia, Yale, NYU, CUNY and Fordham Universities are trained and conduct research across the full purview of conservation genetics. In this way we play a significant role in training the next generation of conservation biologists here and in developing countries. Students are currently working on a wide array of endangered terrestrial, freshwater, and marine vertebrates and invertebrates.
