ANN ARBOR, MI - From conducting research on bones from archaeological digs to the aging process of nematodes, science is finally coming to life inside the University of Michigan's new $261 million Biological Sciences Building.

While the 312,000 square-foot building is still awaiting the arrival of students in the fall, graduate students and faculty are already getting acquainted with the new research spaces inside the five-story building intended to bring together a number of different science departments across the university.
