Clemson dedicates biotech research complex

ordan Hall on campus and is scheduled to open in Spring 2005. Robert E. Ballard, professor in biological sciences, will serve as director.

DNA learning centers prepare students and families to thrive in the gene age. Their mission is to expose students to principles of genetics and disease risk, to provide the opportunity to do hands-on experiments with DNA, and to provide access to genetic information to families and individuals when they need to make informed health care choices.

The $27-million Biosystems Research Complex was built with the support of the South Carolina General Assembly. The complex includes 108,000 square feet of state-of-the-art laboratories and 40,000 square feet of climate-controlled greenhouses. The complex's resources include an automated system to mass produce genetic reference libraries as well as a mass spectrometer, a supercritical extraction unit and micro-array capabilities.
