Biology Facilities and Equipment
Biology majors will learn and work within innovative facilities and with state-of-the-art equipment in Bracy Hall of Science and the newly constructed Gallaher Hall. Students have access to spaces such as a herbarium with thousands of specimens of Ohio plants and a geographic information systems lab with cutting-edge software, large format printers and high-speed computers.
Additionally, students have opportunities to use portable photosynthesis equipment for precise measurement of carbon dioxide in the environment and learn to undertake nutrient analysis of plants, soils and water with a flow injection analyzer.
From fluorescence microscopes and UV-Vis spectrophotometers to 96-well plate readers and gas analyzers, students can perform various research in areas such as the tissue culture lab, the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center, the microscopy lab, the SEM lab and the greenhouse.
Faculty and student collaboration spaces include microbiology and virology labs, developmental biology and molecular genetics labs, physiology and physiological ecology labs and terrestrial and aquatic ecology labs.
