Light shed on how genes shape face

2 posts in this topic

Scientists are starting to understand why one person's face can look so different from another's.

Working on mice, researchers have identified thousands of small regions of DNA that influence the way facial features develop.

The study also shows that tweaks to genetic material can subtly alter face shape.

The findings, published in Science, could also help researchers to learn how facial birth defects arise.
