ALSPAC Logo

The Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) is a long-term health research project. More than 14,000 mothers enrolled during pregnancy in 1991 and 1992, and the health and development of their children has been followed in great detail ever since. The ALSPAC families have provided a vast amount of genetic and environmental information over the years. This resource is assisting scientists all over the world with research into a wide range of health problems.

Twins UK Logo

The Department of Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology (DTR), is the UK's only twin registry of 11,000 identical and non-identical twins between the ages of 16 and 85 years. The database used to study the genetic and environmental aetiology of age-related complex traits and diseases. It is one of the major departments of King's College London Division of Genetics and Molecular Medicine and is the most detailed clinical adult register in the world.
