Face Shaping Genes: Tanzanian Genome Study Provides New Clues on Commonality

A comparative genome study led by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh compares genomic factors underlying variations in facial morphology in East Africans and Europeans. The study revealed unique and common genetic factors, enhancing our understanding of how genes shape the human face and may offer new clues into developmental mechanisms responsible for facial deformities.
