Although identical twins can share the same DNA – or at least most of it, they can't have the same fingerprints.
In fact, there's a one in 64 billion chance that your fingerprint will match up exactly with someone else's. Biometrics, the science of tracking and analysing people's unique biological characteristics, are now being utilised more commonly in the workplace. According to a report from Spiceworks, biometric authentication technology is being utilised in some form or another in 90% of businesses.

The German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) (Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Medizinische Informatik, Biometry und Epidemiologie (GMDS) e.V.) is located in Köln and led  by Prof. Dr. Alfred Winter. The association aims to promote teaching, research and health care and offers documentary, informational, biometric and epidemiological methods as a "cross-sectional subject" to all medical disciplines.

Biometrics is seen as a valuable tool in the fight to help keep private information secure, particularly in the life sciences industry. In September 2019 German public broadcaster Bayerische Rundfunk revealed how sensitive medical data for 13,000 Germans was available online for years. Unsecured servers made it possible to access patient names, birth dates, treatment plans, even high-resolution x-rays and MRIs. According to a report by Business Insider, situations like this are being avoided as 25% of organisations now report using biometric authentication tech on laptops, while 22% also use it on tablets.

Increased demand for biometrics technology across various applications will likely see substantial growth in the market over the next number of years. Biometrics technology is used by various organisations both in the in the public and private and commercial sectors to counter security threats. The sector is likely to reach a value of €53.4bn globally by 2025 experiencing CAGR of 19.5% during the forecast period.
