Kieckhefer Foundation Forensic Lab

The Prescott campus Biology Laboratory includes a Forensic Biology Teaching Laboratory, a Biology Prep Room, and a Biology Research Lab. 

The Forensic Biology Teaching Laboratory is used for laboratory classes in General Biology and within the Forensic Biology major and provides equipment and space for small or short term undergraduate/tenure-track faculty project needs.

The Biology Prep Room is used for extensive preparation of laboratory courses and has small molecular space for undergraduate/tenure-track faculty research projects. 

The Biology Research Lab is used for teaching upper level Forensic Biology courses regarding DNA sequencing and for undergraduate/tenure-track faculty research projects. Storage with cabinets for camping/field equipment and plant archives.
