Curious about what to do with your body after you die? CNN has compiled its top 10 suggestions and UT’s Anthropology Research Facility—commonly known as the Body Farm—is on the list.

The story notes that at the facility, researchers and students study bodies in varying stages of decay to help anthropologists and law enforcement officials answer important questions, such as body identification and time of death analysis. It lauds UT’s Forensic Anthropology Center body donation program, which makes the research possible. The center houses the Body Farm. Both are based in UT’s Department of Anthropology.
