Very interesting

Being an identical twin i have often wondered if any of our DNA was different, has it changed through lifestyle and environment. My twin has remained in the same area all her life where as i have moved around a lot. My twin has lived in a city but i have lived in a seaside/rural environment. I was going to get her a kit from 23&me to see if there was anything different in the health reports but as you probably know the health reports have been suspended. As we have got older you can tell the difference between us there are slight facial differences e.g. she has bigger rounder eyes then me i dont know how that came about as our eyes were the same when we were children. And we both chose fitness for our careers.

basque :rolleyes:

You could always try the Personal Genome Project: PGP-UK

Click here (http://www.personalgenomes.org.uk/) to go their web site.

"Thus far, only a handful of individuals in the world have been extensively sequenced and studied. The PGP aims to change this by giving individuals a platform to share their genome, health and trait data."

"Identical (monozygotic) twins are welcome, but both twins must complete the enrollment process to be eligible."
