According to the scientific journal PLoS genetic, scientists from the University of Pennsylvania, USA have developed a computer program, that can restore the main features of a human face on the basis of DNA. Mark Shriver, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania reported, that to construct an algorithm for constructing by identikit on DNA were used data of analysis shaped faces from 592 people living in the U.S., Brazil and Cape Verde. In analyzing the relationships were found between the facial features of the person and the genomic origin and genes that determine the shape of the face and head: one of the genes responsible for the shape of the lips, the other gene changes the configuration of the bones around the eyes and a third gene affects the shape of the central part of the face, that subsequently allowed the scientists to create a custom algorithm and computer program based on it, which could transform the DNA sequence of an unknown man in a three-dimensional face model, VIDEO:
