Which is why identical twins are also called monozygotic. Since you both have the same DNA, this is almost like the two sets of children have the same moms but different dads. In fact, this is why at the DNA level they are really more like half siblings instead of first cousins.
They share 25% of their DNA (and genes) instead of the usual 12.5%. Identical twins share all of their genes and are always of the same sex. In contrast, fraternal, or dizygotic, twins result from the fertilization of two separate eggs during the same pregnancy. They share half of their genes, just like any other siblings. Fraternal.
Among identical twins, 80 percent of those surveyed reported feeling closer and more familiar with their twin than they did to their best friends, suggesting a strong genetic. To add to Jonathan Shearer’s succinct and excellent answer, if two sets of identical twins had children, their children, while legally first cousins, would genetically be full siblings! Both mothers are identical, and both fathers are identical, so the genetic result would be the same as if there were a single father and mother. Monozygotic (identical) twins share all of their genes, while dizygotic (fraternal) twins share only about 50 percent of them. So, if a researcher compares the similarity between sets of identical twins to the similarity between sets of fraternal twins for a particular trait, then any excess likeness between the identical twins should be due to genes rather than environment.
Identical twins are identical, right? After all, they derive from just one fertilized egg, which contains one set of genetic instructions, or genome, formed from combining the chromosomes of mother. There is an overfocus on twins as subjects in genetic vs. environmental research.
Ironically, even today after living through the ups and downs of my life as a twin in a non-twin world, my twin. Identical twins share the same set of genes, such as ones for thick eyelashes or a pointy nose – as well as the genes that boost risk for diseases. But. There is a common misconception that identical twins have identical DNA and, though they begin development with a matching genetic blueprint, differences in gene expression throughout life means that they differentiate more and more as they age.
Though still more similar than ordinary siblings, they are no longer as identical as one may believe. Identical twins, also known as monozygotic, are those who originate when only one sperm cell fertilizes one egg. This zygote (the egg along with the sperm cell) divides into two, forming two embryos with the same genetic material.
This results in two identical siblings that are born at the same time.
