The form for submitting your final project is here:
Final Project Artifact Submission Form
You should submit your final project by Tuesday, Dec 6 (AoE), which is
7:00am Eastern Time on Wednesday, Dec 7 (there is a 4 hour grace
period on this, so you can submit up to 11:00am Wednesday, Dec 7
without any need to arrange an extension).
Note: this is different from the form you should use to submit your presentation: Project Presentation Form (as mentioned here).
Quiz 3 is posted here: Quiz 3
The quiz is untimed (no time limit enforced), but is expected to take
about 30 minutes.
Before taking the quiz, make sure you understand and are confident you
are able to follow the honor policy for this quiz:
The quiz is closed resources. Once you start the quiz, you are not
allowed to use any other materials. You should not switch to other
browser tabs or look at any notes.
The quiz is to be done on your own. Once you start the quiz, you
should not consult with any other human or artificial intelligence
for help on the quiz questions.
After you complete the quiz, do not discuss the questions with
anyone else in the class (since they may be planning to take the
quiz later) until class Tuesday.
If you prefer to take the quiz on paper instead of the on-line form,
you can come to my office Monday at 1:30pm.
Slides: Class 24: Project Presentations and Covid Origins
Letter organized by Peter Daszak, Statement in support of the scientists, public health professionals, and medical professionals of China combatting COVID-19, The Lancet, 19 February 2020. Addendum on competing interests, 21 June 2021.
Kristian G. Andersen, Andrew Rambaut, W. Ian Lipkin, Edward C. Holmes and Robert F. Garry . The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2. Nature Medicine, 17 March 2020.
There are hundreds of articles with different viewpoints on the more likely origins of Covid-19. These are two of the more balanced ones:
Alina Chan and Matt Ridley’s book Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19 pretends to be balanced (and I believe is mostly solid), but has a clear agenda. Scott Aaronson’s (positive) Review, New Republic review (take down).
ProPublica, COVID-19 Origins: Investigating a “Complex and Grave Situation” Inside a Wuhan Lab, 28 October 2022.
Nick Wade, Proximal Orchestrations: Newly released emails cast more doubt than ever on the official story of Covid-19 as a naturally occurring virus. City Journal. 4 December 2022.

I’ve posted the Schedule for Presentations and a Plan for this week on the github
discussions site. (Everyone should get email notifications for these
from the github site (if not, check that you have the “Watch” selected
for the repository), but I’m posting redundantly here in case you are
not getting them.)
