Quantitative Prediction of Eye Color from DNA

Wednesday September 16th, 2020 // 10:10 am - 10:40 am

Quantitative, or color value, is the way forward with regards the prediction of human pigmentation traits such as eye, hair and skin color from DNA. We will show how we have given eyes a quantitative value and some of the methods we are exploring to provide not only written probabilities of color prediction, but also visual outcomes.
