How Australian police will use DNA sequencing to predict how suspects look

The Australian Federal Police has announced that they are using next-generation DNA sequencing technology to estimate the physical appearance of potential suspects. Based on DNA left at a crime scene, the technology – also known as massively parallel sequencing – can infer a person’s outwardly visible characteristics even in the…
