POSC Facilities


Our facilities include a 112,000-square-foot Center of Excellence for Poultry Science building that houses labs, offices, classrooms, USDA offices and a test kitchen.

Our scientists are national award winners, with several of the past recipients of the Poultry Science Association's prestigious Broiler Research Award on staff at the University of Arkansas. Nearly all of our faculty serve in some capacity as editors on various trade publications and journals. Some of our equipment includes a real-time PCR, biosensor technology, flow cytometry, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and other molecular research equipment, DNA microchip arrayer, phospho- and luminescence imagers, robotic liquid handling systems, DNA synthesizers and sequencers, high-tech computer lab for research and presentation preparation and fully computer-automated Central Analytical Laboratory containing HPLC mass spectrophotometer and protein analysis equipment. You may contact the DNA Research Center housed in the Center if you need assistance with DNA sequencing.
