Biology Labs

The biology department has 3 teaching labs that have been recently upgraded to meet instrumentation and pedagogical requirements in teaching modern biology.

General Biology I Lab (Room A407)

The lab has been recently renovated and redesigned to promote group and active learning. This lab is dedicated to General Biology I and is fully equipped for lab activities in biostatistics, microscopy, cell biology, genetics and evolution, biodiversity, and ecology.
