Is Betty Cooper destined to become a killer? Is the “serial killer” or “warrior” gene, as seen on the show Riverdale real? Team up with CSU Librarians to find out how to search and verify basic genetic information, including linking genes to medical conditions and finding out how to get tested for genes. Then, get the scoop from Dr. Brad Conner on if (and how) genes can affect or predict behavior.
No prior experience with genetics is required – this workshop is for everyone!
