Bio 6A Calendar, Fall 2018

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.

Lecture Final 11:30-1:30    

The lecture final date and time are determined by De Anza's final exam schedule; note that our lecture course meets only Monday and Wednesday -- the labs don't count as far as the final exam schedule is concerned.
