Resources for Biology 305: Genetics

Instructor -- Allan Strand

On-Line Poll Everywhere registration:

Poll Everywhere is an in-class polling service that can accept text from your phone as well as more traditional web access from a laptop or tablet (or phone, for that matter).  You are going to need it.  I'll use it to ask questions in class but also to verify attendance.  So, it's very important that you sign-up.

If you are registered for BIOL305 in the Fall of 2017, I should have sent you a link via email that will allow you to register.  If you want to use the texting feature you have to setup your poll everywhere account to include your phone number.  If you can't find the email and just want to register, use this link.

Schedule for the semester

This is a "live calendar" changes in the class schedule that occur during the semester will be reflected here:

Lectures for each class period are available on this site.  They are available through this link.  Lectures will typically, but not always, be available the night before class.   Note that you can sort the lectures based on date to find the most recently posted one.
