Test predicts hair and eye colour from DNA

2 posts in this topic

Scientists have developed a forensic test that can predict both the hair and eye colour 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.

What if people have more then 1 color hair? I have black hair with strands of red. Will I count as a red head? What if they find the red gene and then dismiss all black haired people because my hair is mostly black.
