Bio 6A Calendar, Fall 2019

McCauley's lab & lecture. Dates may be subject to change, so check back occasionally.

Lecture files: When this quarter's lecture note files are ready, I will link to them in this calendar. If there's not a link yet, the file isn't ready. Each lecture file will typically cover more than one lecture day; if a new file isn't listed for a particular day, then I'm probably continuing with the previous one.

Some lab links won't be live until the day of the lab, because they are problem sets that I want you to do in class.
