A team of 21 South Korean crime scene investigators and medical students last week excavated and buried human remains, caught insects, and examined human skeletons for trauma as part of a training program at UT's Forensic Anthropology Center (FAC). The five-day course broadened the medical students' understanding of the effects of diseases on bones. It also expanded law enforcement personnel's knowledge of collecting evidence at crime scenes.
