+ - Genetic mugshot recreates faces from nothing but DNA->

Submitted by Todd Palin
Todd Palin (1402501) writes "Researchers at Penn State university are trying to reconstruct images of faces based only on the DNA sample of the individual. As far out as this sounds, they did a pretty good job at matching the actual appearance of the faces. This is a pretty good start on a whole new use for DNA samples. Imagine a mug shot of a rapist based only on a DNA sample."
