Where can we find the slides that he's using? They are impossible to see in the video.

Comment2 Larry, July 8, 2009 at 4:04 p.m.:

Excellent overview. It's just what am interested in. Would be great if slides were shown in a side frame, as is done with some edu sites. Know it's in the supp. material, but not quite in sync. Looking forward to completing.

Thank you.

I am a lecturer in the university of bengkulu, indonesia. I teach general biology in dept of biology. Very lucky I found this mit open source web. I asked my students to see this video. There are two reasons, firstly, my student learn biology, secondly, my students learn english from english native biologist. Thanks a lot.
