ANNOUNCEMENTS

Next lab report (combining labs 6 and 8) due April 16th. See lab report guidelines posted here and below in lab section.  .

F2 flies must be counted over the next week----data due Friday, April 17th---by end of day. Don't procastinate, espcially if you need to use the extra vials I set up.  First come---first served with these flies.

Lab 9.5 We will wrap up lab 9 today.  Please review your plates before coming to lab.  Use the discussion handout linked above.

We will also use the time to collect data on F2 flies.  Again, I expect that you will have collected some data on the F2 flies before lab on Thursday.

See handout give in class Monday---here.
