There are two types of twins- fraternal and identical. Fraternal twins are only siblings born at the same time. Identical twins started as 1 egg that split in two after being fertilized. The DNA of identical twins is, well.... identical. At one point, they WERE the same person.

What is the difference between clone and identical twins?

The DNA of identical twins and of clones is, apart from random, environmentally produced mutations, 100% identical. The only difference is that clones are produced on purpose through advanced bioengineering techniques while identical twins happen as an accident of nature. Identical twins are, in a sense, natural clones.

In identical twins, the DNA is identical, which is what makes them identical. In Fraternal twins it is not.


What is the difference between identical twins and conjoined twins?

Identical twins are identical and the egg that they came from split into two giving them the same DNA. Conjoined twins are where the division process is not completed and the embryos remain attached, sometimes sharing organs.

What is the difference btween identical twins and fraternal twins?

Identical twins are the result of a single fertilized embryo splitting in two at an early stage and forming two viable embryos. As such, identical twins have identical DNA. Fraternal twins are the result of two distinct fertilized embryos being viable. As such, they have different DNA. They could even be different sexes.

What is the difference between identical and non identical?

Assuming you're referring to twins, identical twins come from the same fertilized cell that broke into two clumps of cells early in its development and so have identical DNA. Fraternal (non-identical) twins come from from two different cells that were fertilized by two separate sperm and while they develop at the same time, they each have unique DNA.


How can you tell the difference between a DNA molecule undergoing transcription and being replicated?
