Scientists may soon be able to recreate your face from your DNA

It sounds like something out of a dystopian science fiction novel, but forensic scientists could soon be producing accurate reconstructions of criminals' faces using only the DNA they leave behind. Scientists can already decode hair and eye color with reasonable accuracy using DNAThe New York Times reports, and more subtle features like skin color, freckles, and curly hair are not far behind. Facial reconstructions could be matched to a database of mug shots to point the finger at likely suspects. The nascent technique has experts worried, however, about the potential for invasions of privacy or racial profiling.
