Twins make the difference
Looking for the genes for behaviour and health
Twins fascinate people and science. How do genetic similarities determine our actions? Biological psychologist and twin researcher Dorret Boomsma investigates this using data from over 40.000 twins and their families. The Twin Registry contains a wealth of information on our behaviour and health.
