I will provide an overview of the CI, CM, and CR carbonaceous chondrite meteorite groups. In addition, I will review recent work linking the CI chondrites with samples returned from comet Wild 2 by the Stardust mission, the alteration of metal in the CM chondrites, and the relationship between the petrology, geochemistry, and organic content of the CR chondrites.
