Welcome to the website of the Hungarian Twin Registry!

Welcome to the website of the Hungarian Twin Registry! Currently, the voluntary Hungarian Twin Registry consists of more than 600 adult twin pairs and multiplets. Current research focuses mainly on cardiovascular and respiratory health and yielded multiple awards and publications. Efforts are on the way to expand into social, psychological, and obesity studies. The work of our registry has been awarded at multiple conferences, without your registration our work would not be so successful.

One day in 1954, Jack Yufe, a store owner from Southern California, stepped off a train in Essen, West Germany, and began searching the crowd at the station. He was looking for someone he had not seen since he was a baby, 21 years earlier.

A man approached. A strangely familiar man. “What a nerve, someone is wearing my face,” Mr. Yufe (pronounced YOO-fee) recalled thinking in an interview with Nancy L. Segal for her 2005 book, “Indivisible by Two: Lives of Extraordinary Twins.”

Despite the important role that monozygotic twins have played in genetics research, little is known about their genomic differences. Here we show that monozygotic twins differ on average by 5.2 early developmental mutations and that approximately 15% of monozygotic twins have a substantial number of these early developmental mutations specific to one of them. Using the parents and offspring of twins, we identified pre-twinning mutations.

The siblings - a girl and a boy - were born in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh during an ongoing nationwide lockdown.
"The delivery happened after facing several difficulties and therefore, my husband and I wanted to make the day memorable," the twins' 27-year-old mother told news agency Press Trust of India.
She said the coronavirus was "dangerous and life-threatening", but the COVID-19 outbreak had also made people focus on sanitation, hygiene and instil other good habits.
