Genetics of Facial Traits

The project, in collaboration with Psychaitric Centre Sct Hans (Institute of Biological Psychiatry)aims to identify anthropometrical biomarkers, i.e. facial traits, associated with psychiatric disorders. This will be accomplished by using 3D-images techniques to identify facial traits associated risk of schizophrenia and determine the genetic basis of facial variation in both healthy and diseased individuals. We conduct GWA-study on facial features and identify genes associated with specific facial features.
