IB 432   Genes and Behavior                               

               

            Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse IB432 Genes and Behavior website!
            (My emergency website for catastrophic Moodle failures.)


                This is really an old class website that I'm rebuilding (from my memory) for this semester's material.
                Links below will take you to all papers for each week. Sorry, the study questions were lost.
