The effects of chorion type on normal and abnormal developmental variation in monozygous twins.

To determine the effects, if any, of chorion type on normal and abnormal developmental variation in monozygous (MZ) twins, we tested the hypothesis that disparate environments that are related to chorion type have no effect on this variation. The parameters studied included congenital anomalies and dermatoglyphics (total ridge count and right-left asymmetry… CONTINUE READING
