Molecular Biology Lab

The Reproductive Physiology Group performs their molecular biology research in laboratory spaces located in Hultz Hall 110 and 119c. Located in this lab is equipment required for tissue homogenization, nucleic acid and protein purification, RNA quantification and integrity analysis, cDNA synthesis, PCR, and qPCR. Nuclease-free work spaces are maintained for molecular work in these labs.
