Lab this week (April 17th).  Drawing conclusions from our bacterial transformation experiment.  See document below.  Be sure to come to  lab with a good understanding of what you did, how the media plates differ, and with some predictions of what you might see.

Post lab discussion here

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.
