Alterations in craniofacial size and shape are apparent in many monogenic diseases and syndromes, but remarkably little is known about the genetics of face shape within healthy populations. This may be set to change following publication of a study that combines unsupervised hierarchical spectral clustering and canonical correlation analysis to help identify common genetic variants associated with craniofacial shape.
