The Biotron has a two-story greenhouse with 25 air-conditioned environmentally controlled rooms (156 ft2 and 180 ft2) and 4 large evaporatively cooled rooms (525 ft2). Environmental control provides for specific lighting, temperature, automatic watering, humidity and CO2-delivery regimens. Greenhouse rooms provide for bio-isolation of experiments and are suitable for BL1-P and some BL2-P work.
Isolated rooms and skilled professional staff provide for excellent pest management and disease control, allowing superior growth performance. Conditions in each greenhouse room are monitored daily on site and remotely for 24-hour per day, 7-days per week coverage.
