It provides services in support of the <a href="http://www.bio.umass.edu/biology/bcrc/">BCRC</a>, <a href="/courses/">Life Science courses</a>, and the teaching labs in Morrill Science Center. Most of the pages *about* the BCRC are now part of the Biology Department pages about the BCRC, including our <a href="http://www.bio.umass.edu/biology/undergraduate/biology-computer-resource-center/resources">list of resources</a> and <a href="http://www.bio.umass.edu/biology/undergraduate/biology-computer-resource-center/documentation">documentation</a>.</p> <p>For printing in the BCRC, there are the <a href="/printrelease/">print release pages</a>. If you're in the ISB, you need the <a href="https://wahoo.nsm.umass.edu/printrelease/">print release on wahoo</a>. If you're working in the ISB, you'll get redirected there automatically, if you try to connect the print release system on snapper.</p> <p>There is a <a href="/wiki/">BCRC Wiki</a>, which we mainly use for scheduling.</p> <!--break--></div> Thu, 20 May 2010 13:34:02 +0000 rootlet 1 at http://bcrc.bio.umass.edu Server Updates http://bcrc.bio.umass.edu/node/104 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Server Updates</span> <span><a title="View user profile." href="/user/5" lang="" about="/user/5" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbrewer</a></span> <span>Tue, 03/12/2019 - 17:50</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>We updated the server operating system today (March 12, 2019) and are slowly bringing services back online.
