Scientists have announced the creation of a new technology capable of producing 3D models of people’s faces by examining their DNA, a tool experts say could help police create mug shots of criminals from DNA evidence taken from a crime scene. What do you think?

“I’ll miss the soft eyes and gentle hues that a pencil drawing can highlight in a criminal.”

“Call me old-fashioned, but you don’t need some fancy modeling computer for mug shots. Just describe the criminal’s DNA structure to a sketch artist and they’ll do the rest.”

“Can they make me a new mug shot? I’ve always hated mine.”
