Some Identical Twins Don’t Have the Exact Same DNA

Identical twins were thought to be genetically the same. However, a new study finds that’s not always the case.

On average, identical twins differ by 5.2 genetic changes. Researchers have now shared their new findings in Nature Genetics at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41588-020-00755-1.

NOTE: An abstract of the report is available at that site free of charge. However, access to the full report costs $8.99 (U.S.)
