Twin registries in Malaysia and all over the world are providing the foundation for invaluable research into the causes of health problems and diseases. Identical or monozygotic twins (MZ) grow from one egg (a combination of sperm and ovum) and share the same genes which translate to the same physical characteristics. This means that they inherit their parents genes and therefore any difference in terms of their development, health issues or diseases could be the result of environmental factors such as intra uterine en


National Malaysian twin registry (NMTR) is a non-profit organization which facilitates scientific research involving participation of twins or their family members in order to answer some of the questions of health and wellbeing relevant to Malaysians.
