Do you have thicker or thinner eyebrows? The shape and thickness of your eyebrows contribute to the impression you give others, as eyebrows play an important role in emotional expression and nonverbal communication.
Genome-wide association study in Japanese females identifies fifteen novel skin-related trait associations. This research paper identified the genetic markers associated with eyebrow thickness. Research on skin-related traits like this one sheds light on what kind of DNA-personalized cosmetics, based on an individual’s DNA, is possible in the near future.
