Pima Community College's annual Speaker Series is getting started Tuesday night with a talk about DNA and how it is used to in police work. The talk will be given by Christian Wilson, a Biology instructor at the college.
The free event will take place at Pima's District Office, 4905 E. Broadway, at 6 p.m.
The other two talks in the series will take place in March and April. In March, Biology instructor Theodore G. Manno, Ph.D., will give a talk titled “Social Behavior of Prairie Dogs and Ground Squirrels,” recounting his time studying rodents in colonies across western North America.
Then, on April 7, Art instructor Barbara Jo McLaughlin will give a talk on Japanese wood sculptors, focusing on her research in Tokyo. She will show photographs and discuss the artists’ works, working methods and unique tools. She also will talk about her immersion into Japanese culture.
