PHG 301 Introduction to Genetic Epidemiology (3) I&S/NW
M W 3:30 – 4:50

Please consider sharing these Winter 2013 courses with your students…
One is a plant microbiology seminar. I have speakers lined up from all around the UW campus (including Erica Cline from UW
Tacoma) and a special speaker from Colorado who will speak on white pine blister rust that is wiping out these important forest trees.
The other class is the new plant microbiology lab to give our students hands-on skills in microbiology and some molecular biology as well.
MyUW Mobile has been released. The mobile-friendly version of MyUW was built in response to priorities expressed by UW students and gives them access to information they said they want most while on the go. Using a mobile device, registered students will be able to get course information, including instructor contact information, required textbooks, course web sites and classroom locations. Visit MyUW on your mobile device and automatically be directed to the mobile-friendly version.
