Wow, the future is coming quickly… This article discusses the state of the art of predicting macroscropic features (hair color, age, ethnicity, adult height, etc) from human DNA. Many of the categories have very low accuracy today, but it’s interesting which of them are the most feasible (age, to my surprise, seems to be one of the more accurate due to methylation) and which of them are most likely to improve in the near future with more research.
BTW Promega is a local company here in the Madison, WI area. I did a tiny bit of work for them almost 15 years ago.
