Our DNA experts will be featured in a new PBS show, “Skeletons in the Closet”

A segment for a new Texas-based Public Broadcasting System series called “State of Tomorrow” was filmed in our DNA lab on Friday, Feb. 9. The 10-minute segment will run as part of one of the series’ 30-minute episodes. The 13-episode series is scheduled to launch the week of April 8 in all 13 Texas PBS markets.

Art Eisenberg, PhD, director of the DNA Identity Lab, and John Planz, PhD, assistant director of the DNA Identity Lab, were both interviewed for the segment, titled “Skeletons in the Closet.”

The segment will highlight the work the DNA lab does in tandem with Gill King, PhD, director of the UNT Laboratory of Forensic Anthropology and Human Identification — the two labs together make up the UNT System Center for Human Identification.

“State of Tomorrow” examines work conducted in Texas in areas including disaster relief, healthcare, environmental quality, among others, and each episode includes work conducted at institutions of higher education around the state.
