The Department of Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiologyhas extensive biological and questionnaire data available on several hundred phenotypes and it is one of the most genotyped in the world. The twin register adminsterd by TwinsUK, is run as a resource for the research community. The resource is set up as a supported access resource rather than as an open access resource.
Maintenance of our cohort is funded by the Wellcome Trust. For more information please go to the Wellcome Trust website.
The Department is looking to facilitate and encourage the sharing of data and material with the world scientific community in view to promote and contribute to further scientific research and generate new ideas and knowledge.
The Department is specifically committed to:
- Facilitate multidisciplinary research and general access to both phenotypic and genotypic data for diverse set of clinically related traits.
- Publication in peer reviewed journals as well as creating open forum to interact with the scientific community.
