First Floor

Major parts of the first-floor biology areas include the Biology Commons, teaching labs, and faculty-research labs.

Biology Commons

The Biology Commons is open to the east-west corridor.
The extended east-west corridor, with the opening to the Biology Commons just barely visible about half-way down the corridor on the left.

Biology Teaching Labs
