Facilities

The Department of Biological Science has teaching and research laboratories equipped with modern instrumentation.

Teaching laboratories and teaching materials encompass expertise in:

  • molecular biology
  • immunology
  • microbiology
  • genetics
  • anatomy
  • embryology
  • histology

Research core facilities include:

  • transmission and scanning electron microscopes
  • flow and cell sorting cytometers
  • recombinant DNA and monoclonal antibody laboratories
  • cell culture equipment
  • animal colonies
  • fully equipped greenhouse
  • charged-coupling device quantitative fluorescence microscopes
  • automated DNA sequencing capability
  • water quality analysis devices
  • ultracentrifuges
  • scintillation and gamma counters
  • HPLC systems
  • fully-equipped research darkroom

In addition to the core facilities, each member of the graduate faculty maintains a research lab. These facilities are utilized by faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students to pursue research projects funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, The United States Department of Agriculture, and many private foundations. Undergraduate involvement in all departmental research is strongly supported and encouraged.
