Twins DNA Test
Identical, or Non-Identical Twins?
What is a Twins Test?
Twins can be conceived in one of two ways:
- Through a double fertilization, involving 2 egg cells that are fertilized by 2 sperm cells. Genetically, these children are on a same par as ordinary brothers and/or sisters from separate pregnancies. They are called non-identical, dizygotic, biovular or fraternal twins.
- A different situation occurs if, early after fertilization the (precursor of the) embryo, conceived from a single egg cell, splits in two, giving rise to 2 individuals. Genetically, these children are completely identical (and hence of the same gender). They are called identical or monozygotic twins.
A simple DNA-test can unequivocally determine which of these hypotheses is true. We call this DNA test the Twins Test.
