UTHSC Researchers’ Work on Human Pangenome Aids Understanding of Common Chromosomal Abnormality


Researchers from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center have made a foundational discovery about chromosome biology through their work on the first-ever human pangenome reference. Published recently by the Human Pangenome Reference Consortium in the journal Nature, the draft pangenome uses complete genome assemblies to provide a diverse look at the genetic makeup of… Read More

UTHSC Researchers Part of Decades-Long Project to Drastically Improve Brain Imaging


After nearly 40 years of research, a team including two researchers from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center has published a process for improving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) capabilities, allowing the researchers to capture brain images at a higher resolution than ever before. As a result of the study, scientists can now create images that… Read More
