Our classes and faculty-student collaborative research activities in the Biology program at Macalester College are supported by first-rate laboratory facilities and equipment, including state-of-the-art technology for DNA and protein analysis, a flow cytometer, a real-time PCR system, a mammalian tissue culture facility, a research-grade greenhouse, image analysis and presentation equipment, a scanning electron microscope, and a wide assortment of other technical equipment supporting course work and research.
In addition, classes and faculty and students conducting field research utilize the college’s 285-acre field station located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River just 25 minutes from campus.
Expectations Of Our Students
We expect that by graduation, all Macalester Biology students should understand that science is a continual and dynamic process of investigation. All students should appreciate that biological knowledge progresses via the support and rejection of competing hypotheses by the scientific community. Students should understand that these decisions are based on empirical evidence and logical arguments developed through inductive and deductive reasoning.
