Welcome to the Department of Genetic Identification of Erasmus MC (formerly known as Department of Forensic Molecular Biology)."
With the advancement of DNA phenotyping as a tool in Forensic and Anthropological usage, we now provide an easy to use interactive website to predict both eye and hair colour from DNA using the IrisPlex and HIrisPlex systems.
Please see the manual for instructions. We hope you enjoy using this tool and find it a useful addition to your analyses. If you have any issues regarding this website, please contact us using the contact form.
Please cite this reference when you use the online tool in your analyses.
