DNA Test to Tell Identical Twins Apart

DNA analysis is an invaluable forensic tool, but it has its limitations. Until now, crimes and paternity cases involving monozygotic—"identical"—twins could not be resolved using DNA, since the genetic makeup of such twins is virtually indistinguishable given current analysis methods. Even though there are minute differences between the genetic codes of identical twins, time constraints and prohibitive costs have kept tests to detect them out of reach of law enforcement. However, a relatively quick and affordable new DNA test could be the answer investigators have been looking for. More...

It is amazing what science is doing. Today one can send their DNA to the National Geographic DNA Study and get their migration and movement patterns of their ancestors.

How are the world's dwindling soap opera writers going to work around this one?

Criminal minds, forensic analysis. I don't know what help the growing of the science, if crime or diseases.
