The Department -- The Zoology Department has 25 faculty, about 180 undergraduate majors, and nearly 70 graduate students and post-docs. The departmental home is Cordley Hall, along with Botany & Plant Pathology, the Biology Program, and the Environmental Science Program. Physically linked to Cordley Hall by sky bridges are the Agricultural and Life Sciences Building and Nash Hall, which house most of the other life science departments on campus. These include Biochemistry and Biophysics, Horticulture, Microbiology, and Fisheries and Wildlife. Graduate study in the biological sciences is rounded out by an interdisciplinary Molecular and Cell Biology Program and by the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing. Shared facilities within this three-building complex include an electron microscope service facility, the Central Services Laboratory (state-of-the-art molecular biology equipment and services, plus access to off-campus monoclonal antibody facilities), computer facility, several types of invertebrate and vertebrate breeding facilities, green houses, and separate research museums of entomology, botany, and vertebrates. Off campus teaching and research facilities include the Hatfield Marine Science Center on Yaquina Bay, a desert research field station at Malheur, and a forest ecosystem site in MacDonald Forest.
