Every summer outside Cleveland, Ohio identical twins congregate at the Twins Days Festival. Twins from all over join in on an assortment of activities over three days that resembles a massive Doublemint® gum commercial.
It’s not just the twins that get stoked for the festival though. As was highlighted in a nice article in National Geographic recently, research teams from all over turn up, keen to access one of the most useful experimental models for the nature vs. nurture throw down.
We won’t summarize the article here as it’s free and a fun read. Inside, you’ll find some of EpiGenie’s favorite researchers highlighted, including Drs. Andrew Feinberg and Art Petronis.
