Teaching and research in the School of Systems Biology relies on both local resources and the College of Science Supercomputing Center.
Facilities on the Prince William Campus include bioinformatics computer labs, molecular biology labs, and specialized classrooms. Computer facilities include an Apple Bioinformatics Workgroup Cluster, XServe andLinux workstations. The School of Systems Biology supports two computer classrooms configured with advanced bioinformatics, visualization, and data-mining software, and a biotechnology wet lab including automated DNA analyzers. High-speed Internet connections permit interactive distance learning and access to remote databases. Mason facilities on the Prince William Campus are partially shared with the American Type Culture Collection, the world's largest collection of living biological cultures.
