Hosted by the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (a program of the National Institute of Justice), the webinar will focus on the principles, methods, and applications of DNA-based prediction of human appearance traits for forensic and anthropological use with specific insights into eye, hair, and skin color prediction from DNA.
