DNA-info from photograph

”We published a paper showing that lots of data that wasn’t protected in the same way that DNA is protected was being released in the public domain, and that we could uniquely identify individuals in those studies based on non-DNA-based information. So there may be enough, say, genetic information contained within morphological features in your face that we could bar-code you with a DNA tag, so with just a photograph we could derive a DNA bar code and be able to match that up to whatever genome that face belongs to.
