DNA reviews: predicting phenotype.


The prediction of an individuals physical appearance from small biological samples, such as those collected from crime scenes may still sound like science fiction, but how close are we to achieving this goal? This review provides a brief introduction to the areas under investigation for direct and indirect phenotypic inference from DNA alone and suggests some sources of further reading for those interested in gaining a more in-depth knowledge of this complex subject.
