Feature: Her business is blood… and hair… and anything DNA-related

With shows like CSI, Castle, Breaking Bad and The Mentalist drawing big audiences, UW-Green Bay grad Amber Rasmussen lives the life that intrigues the masses. She’s a DNA analyst for the State Crime Laboratory in Milwaukee. It’s not as glamorous or dramatic as TV might lead you to believe, of course, but it is interesting and important. Rasmussen is a 2003 graduate in Biology and Human Biology with nice things to say about her experience here and mentors including Associate Prof. Warren Johnson.
