Weyandt HallThe Department of Biology, housed in four floors of Weyandt Hall, is equipped to support a diversity of research in both the laboratory and the field.

Facilities are available for housing experimental animals and plants (i.e., animal rooms, controlled environmental chambers). A laboratory for experimentation with pathogenic organisms is available, as is modern research instrumentation, including refrigerated and ultra-centrifuges, spectrophotometers, thermocyclers, real-time PCR, ClassII/B transfer hood for plant tissue culture, and fluorescence microscopes. The department houses a computer classroom, a herbarium, and museum collections for ornithology and mammalogy. A machine shop and electronics shop plus associated technicians are available to faculty and students for construction of unique, research equipment. The department uses six twelve-passenger vans for teaching and research. The department has multimedia classrooms and a student lounge.
