The Center for Biological Chemistry trains future scientists for tomorrow’s challenges in plant, animal, and microbial metabolism, redox biology, plant biochemistry, synthetic biology, and more.
Instructional programs are focused in laboratories and classrooms within the George W. Beadle Center for Genetics and Biomaterials Research. The Beadle Center houses most of the department-affiliated faculty members in state-of-the-art research laboratories and many of the Center for Biotechnology and Redox Biology Center core facilities. These facilities include mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, plant transformation, and microscopy facilities. Also available are an outstanding full-service plant growth and greenhouse complex, and equipment for fluorescence-activated cell analysis, analytical ultracentrifugation, and next-generation high-throughput DNA sequencing.
