Biology Computer Resource Center

Craig Slater, a BCRC consultant, is ready to answer your questions.

315 Morrill Science Center

The BCRC is a Computing Facility in the Department of Biology (315 Morrill Science Center, Building III South). Macintosh computers are available for use by Life Sciences students and faculty. If you have questions, please send email to bcrc-help@bio.umass.edu or call 545-3631.

During the academic year, the BCRC is staffed by student consultants Monday through Thursday from 8am - 9pm (until 5pm on Fridays). Summer and intersession hours are unofficial, but the facility is usually open anyway. The Director, Steven D. Brewer, collaborates with faculty and students to develop resources and course websites. Don't hesitate to contact us if you're looking for technical support in using instructional technology!

The BCRC offers resources and documentation to help you get stuff done.

We build Course Accounts each year starting in August -- just set a password to start using it. If we haven't already built an account for your life science class yet, ask if we can build one for the course you are taking.

Stop by the Finals Week Biology Rejuvenation Station: Morrill 301 on May 1, Morrill 215 afterward.

Thanks to Elizabeth Connor for organizing!

The BCRC will have weekend hours: noon-9pm on April 25 and 26 and noon-5pm on May 2-3.

Good luck on Finals!

Ellen Lutz will be in the BCRC on Thursdays from 3-4 for people to ask questions.

Our openings for Spring have been filled. Thanks to everyone who expressed interest. And welcome to Jessica, Fallon, and Innocent our new BCRC staff.

The BCRC will probably need to hire some consultants this semester. If you would like to work in the BCRC, please contact Steven Brewer. I will give preference to people with workstudy.
