Many facilities in the Biology Department are shared among all members of the department. These include "Charged Centers," such as the plant growth facility, DNA sequencing facility, microscopic facility, computer facility, etc, and "Shared Instruments," such as ultracentrifuges, scintillation counters, spectrophotometers, etc. It is expected that users of these facilities share the cost of maintenance and operation cost.
