Bio 6A Calendar, Fall 2017

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

My office hours: Monday & Wednesday, 2:20-3:20 (after lecture); Tuesday & Thursday, 11:30-12:20 (before first lab). Mondays & Wednesdays after lecture will be the best times for find me for office hours; on some lab days, I may need to get into the lab early to set things up.
