Biology Central Services (BCS) is a support unit providing administrative support for the three Biology departments in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB); Molecular and Cell Biology ( MCB); and Physiology and Neurobiology (PNB).
Where are we located?
Our main offices are located in Torrey Life Sciences Room 161. If you have any questions, our staff is eager and ready to help you. Our main offices are open from 7:30am to 4:30 pm Monday thru Friday.
A major in Biological Sciences is offered jointly by the three biology departments and is supported by BCS personnel. BCS coordinates and supplies clerical and laboratory support for the biology courses at the 100's level. BCS helps to maintain scientific infrastructure for both academic and research pursuits. This infrastructure includes (but is not limited to) animal care facilities, distilled water, autoclaves and common equipment. In its most basic articulation, the purpose of BCS is to help Biology faculty negotiate the University bureaucracy with minimum inconvenience so as to allow them to focus their efforts on the research, academic and service pursuits to which they have devoted their careers.
