These modern-looking, sandstone-based buildings, known as FABI 1 and FABI 2, are similar in style and home to a postgraduate course that combines Biochemistry, Botany, Genetics, Microbiology, Plant Pathology, Zoology, Entomology and Plant Production. The buildings also house the Graduate School of Agriculture and Rural Development and advanced biotechnology laboratories. Designed by Willie Ooshuizen of the firm VDO Architects, FABI 1 was inaugurated in March 1999 and the adjacent FABI Bioinformatics Square (FABI 2), in 2002.
