Last lecture today! 5-9-2014.  Guidlines for final here and below in topics list section.

Drosophila data linked: Here.  WOW data looks really good as a group!  Please use the data to create the map now.  All data makes sense and is usable as is.  We will discuss on Thursday, May 8th in Lab!   Bring your map, questions, and comments.  You must have something to show in lab that you have attempted the map.

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.
