Making Faces: Diving Into The Complex Genetics Of Facial Appearance

Different Faces

By: Dr. Seth M. Weinberg

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — There is overwhelming evidence that our facial features are influenced by our genes. In most cases, one needn’t look much further than one’s own family photo album to verify this claim. Nevertheless, very little is known about which genes are most important for determining the shape of a person’s nose or eyes or lips. Uncovering the genetic architecture of such typical facial traits can offer novel insights into the molecular mechanisms that build faces. Moreover, this line of research can enhance our understanding of how craniofacial malformations arise. Down the road, we may even be able to predict someone’s facial features or growth from their DNA, which has numerous potential clinical and biometrics implications.

A Single Gene’s Varied Products Help Us Feel Our Complex World

BETHESDA, Maryland — Touch is a complicated sense that results from many different types of mechanical stimuli: Pressure, texture, vibrations, and more. Our sense of touch is sensitive enough to detect even the movement of a single hair. It allows us to appreciate the varied crunchy textures of carrots, the smoothness of cream, and “slipperiness” of noodles. Together with other senses, touch helps us decide what’s safe to eat. Pain-sensitive touch receptors in our teeth even alert us when it’s time to see a dentist.
