Test Can Predict Hair and Eye Color from DNAAug 26, 2012
By Paul Rincon
Scientists have developed a forensic test that can predict both the hair and eye color of a possible suspect using DNA left at a crime scene.
The team that developed the test says it could provide valuable leads in cases where perpetrators cannot be identified through DNA profiling.
The Hirisplex system could allow investigators to narrow down a large group of possible suspects.
