Plant Growth & Phenotyping Facility (PGPF)




The Plant Growth and Phenotyping Facility at the University of Wyoming is an innovative research hub located on the 5th floor of the Science Initiative Building in the northwest section of the University of Wyoming campus. The Facility, commissioned in 2023, includes a sprawling 6,400-square-foot complex of research Greenhouses (with a total of 12 different bays) and an adjacent Research Penthouse housing two spacious walk-in chambers and a range of laboratory spaces meant to support the activities for all users. The research spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies to provide tight environmental controls for plant growth and additional phenotyping applications. Spaces and services at this University of Wyoming Core Facility are available for all faculty and students campus-wide and for extra-mural institutions and private companies, with a fee-for-use model and partly subsidized by the Division of Research and Development.
