The research carried out by the Netherlands Twin Register focuses on the interplay of genetic and environmental factors in mental and physical health. For instance, the NTR investigates why some people become more easily depressed than others, or why certain people have diabetes while others don't. Other research areas include lifestyle and habits that influence health and disease, such as smoking, drinking and exercise.
