Our lab facilities and equipment
Our main lab (room 234) and our tissue culture facility (room 326A) in Starcher Hall were completely renovated in 2008.
Our lab equipment
Some of our equipment is communally available in the newly established Genomics Analytical Laboratory in room 232 Starcher Hall, next door to our main lab.
In addition to major equipment (see photos below), we also have a complete line of tools in our main lab for routine molecular biology research including: analytical balances, magnetic stirrers, pH meter, hot plates, water baths, heat blocks, minifuges, orbital platform shakers, hybridization oven, 35L and 5L liquid nitrogen dewars, and a PCR hood.
