Monozygotic

Monozygotic is a type of biological twins that are formed from a single fertilized egg that splits into two separate embryos.  Thus, the twins share the exact same genetic information.  This is contrasted with dizygotic, which is a type of biological twins that are formed from two separate fertilized eggs and therefore will not have identical genetic information.
