As you probably know by now, NCSU has cancelled classes for Wednesday, Jan 17th, due to the threat of bad weather. Therefore you are expected to review the textbook and online material for Wednesdays lecture on your own, but I've pushed off the most important section (on sequence alignment) until our next lecture meeting.

I've just graded the first Discussion session. You should check your scores RIGHT NOW on the course web site "Grades" page to make sure all is good.

Start by checking your PIN - if you don't see it, or haven't given one to me, get a PIN to me right away so you know where your scores are.

If you have a "10" for your score, then all is good, no worries.

If you DON'T have a score of 10, that means some of your work isn't there, or I can't find it. You should have turned in a primary comment (an idea for an experiment) and two secondary comments (additions to your own work or feedback to others). If you did these and don't have a score of 10, it probably means you didn't put your name on it, and so I don't know who to assign the points to. If this is the case, send me an email with the text of your primary and 2 secondary comments so I know who they belong to.

If you don't have a score at all, this means you didn't post anything at all. If this is the case, please let me know what's going on.

Please check this now - I have several posts without names and so whoever they belong to aren't getting the credit they deserve.
