Now Police Can Reconstruct Your Face From DNA Evidence

Criminals who inadvertently leave traces of their DNA at the crime scene now have something more to worry about. By isolating 24 genetic variants, researchers have developed a computer program that can construct surprisingly accurate 3D models of facial features.

Forensic science is progressing quickly these days owing to a number of breakthroughs. Investigators can use DNA evidence to predict hair and eye color of suspects, use maggots to extract a victim’s DNA from their otherwise unrecognizable bodies, detect hidden faces by zooming into hi-res photos of eyes, and use DNA to create virtual mugshot’s of a suspect’s face.
