Student Accounts

As a student, your instructor may have provided you with a CourseID and Account. You can access your assigned populations by launching CGS and entering this information when prompted. If you have already performed crosses within CGS, use the password assigned to you when you first logged in to retrieve your saved organisms. Only your instructor can recover lost or forgotten passwords.


If you do not have a CourseID or Account, click the launch link on the left to investigate the practice populations or create your own population.

Please note: Instructor accounts are not issued to students.

Some areas of CGS are free and do not require that you have an account. An instructor account allows you to customize CGS for your course:

  Create populations for your course with specific or randomized genetic properties
  Select from a long list of basic and advanced genetics options for your populations
  Track the progress of your students
  Students can save their work
  You and your students have unlimited access your CGS populations from any computer


Instructors who are interested in using CGS for their course may request an instructor account by completing the form below. As a new user, you will be issued an account with one month of unlimited access so you may evaluate the software. After this trial period, you can renew your license on a semester or yearly basis.
