Research projects

Our purpose is, through twin analysis, to identify the genetic component in various somatic diseases and significant genetic and environmental determinants for human development and aging.

Research using data from The Danish Twin Registry is mainly conducted at the Faculty of Health Sciences at University of Southern Denmark, but data is in principle available to many types of scientific research.
