With this research we now know that not only the number but also the location of moles on the body is in large part due to genetics," said lead researcher Dr Alessia Visconti, from the Department of Twin Research
at King's College London.
She's a research associate in the department of twin research
and genetic epidemiology at King's College London.
Previous twin research
has linked genetic factors to 80% of acne variance, with environmental factors, such as stress and low intake of produce, believed to account for the rest of the risk (J Invest Dermat.
Some studies do show that adopted siblings have similar levels of educational success, but other twin research
argues that due to assortative mating, or the tendency of people with similar preferences and interests to marry each other, fraternal twins are more similar than we'd expect because so many parents share similar genetic traits.

Michelle Beaumont of King's College London's department of twin research
and genetic epidemiology, said last month there was a clear connection between fecal bacteria and obesity and that the link was the strongest in regards to stool and visceral fat.
The author has organized the main body of her text in eight chapters devoted to the first and the other as twins in creation myths, literary representation of twins, social and cultural development structures in twin research
, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
"The findings could have a significant impact for primary care, allowing general practitioners (GPs) to more accurately estimate the total number of moles on a patient extremely quickly, via an easily accessible body part," said the study's lead author, Simone Ribero, MD, of the Department of Twin Research
& Genetic Epidemiology, King's College, London, UK.

As volunteers in The Department of Twin research
, based at Kings College Hospital, for the last 21 years Karen and Lindsey are still just as fascinated meeting other twins, discussing behaviour and seeing two people who walk and talk in such similar ways, as well as looking the same.
