New technology can create mugshots using only DNA
Scientists have developed a new technology that can map accurate facial structures using racial, gender, and genetic markers using DNA.
The researchers at Penn State and the Catholic University of Leuven captured a 3D image of 600 volunteers and created a mesh of 7000 points that were used to precisely measure how genes attached to ancestry and gender affect the face's structural makeup, New Scientist reported.
Geneticist Mark Shriver is already using the statistical model aid in two serial rape cases in Pennsylvania and hopes that the tool can be used to improve images for ancient hominins.
The research team now needs to conduct similar studies in different populations and successfully replicate their findings.
