  • One way to find out if a trait is inherited is to
    study twins.
  • Identical twins develop from a single fertilized
    egg (also called monozygotic) and share the same
    genes.
  • Fraternal twins come from two different eggs
    fertilized by two different sperm (also called
    dizygotic).
