Understanding the genes that determine human facial shape could one day provide valuable information about person's appearance using just their DNA.


The discovery of five genes involved in facial form could have applications in forensics, say the authors of a study.


Virtually nothing was known about the genes responsible for facial shape in humans.
The study of almost 10,000 individuals is published in Plos Genetics.


Lead author Manfred Kayser from the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, said: "These are exciting first results that mark the beginning of the genetic understanding of human facial morphology.

Finally i'll be able to see just what the hell i look like .

Maybe this science will be good to figure out what ancient humans facially looked like e.g. the Denisovans.

I was sixty in July, I wonder what I'll look like twenty years from now and predict what I used to look like when I was twenty. Even better, what a baby would like when she/he was 25. On second thought, maybe the latter wouldn't like what they saw ahead of time...
