Research Facilities

Scientific discoveries are closely linked to technological development. During the last thirty years, new techniques for molecular biology, advances in microscopy, and innovations in methods for chemical and structural determination stimulated a revolution in biology. These approaches often depended upon equally dramatic developments in computing. UCSC maintains and constantly expands cutting-edge facilities that enable scientists to carry out their research.
