How to use "Doublets" in context?

Doublets are twins who are more than just siblings. Doublets are two individuals who are genetically identical but are born with two completely different sets of DNA, which can create some interesting phenomena.

There are a few different types of doublets, but the most common is the dizygotic or fraternal twin. In these cases, two babies are born with the same DNA but with two different sets of reproductive cells. For instance, one baby might have one set of cells that create muscle and another that creates bone, while the second baby might have two sets of cells that both create muscle.
