Scientists Detect Commonality in the DNA of People with Similar Faces
A study conducted at the Josep Carreras Leukemia Research Institute in Barcelona, Spain, found commonality in the DNA of people with similar faces.
In a scientific study conducted in Spain, it was announced that the DNA of people with similar faces is also similar.
The study, conducted at the Josep Carreras Leukemia Research Institute in Barcelona, Spain, revealed that strong facial similarity is associated with shared genetic variants.
A database of people's face and body measurements was used in the study, which was conducted on approximately 4,000 people.
One in Trillion Chance of Having the Same Face
Also, using a combination of eight hundred metric features in the study, he discovered that the odds of finding two hundred in the same measurements in the general population were less than one in a trillion.
The study found that facial similarity was associated with physical characteristics such as weight and height, as well as behavioral characteristics such as smoking and education.
