New DNA tool

A new tool uses DNA to predict eye, hair, skin colour …

Quote from the above article: “The tool has been used by law enforcement in the Netherlands, Poland, and Australia, but it has not yet been adopted in the United States, Walsh said. It has also been used on ancient DNA, and it was used to determine that King Richard III had blue eyes and blond hair.”

Ah, but was he blond as a child? Or throughout into manhood? And just how accurate is all this anyway?

    I’ve heard up to a third of blonde DNA predictions are wrong. It is probably the least reliable colour to predict as so many European children are blonde for some years and then turn brown. The eye colour testing is more reliable.
