Genetic Testing for Huntington’s Disease
Should Jenny get tested for Huntington’s disease?
Jenny is a young woman with a family history of Huntington’s disease (an inherited disease caused by a defective dominant gene). In this multi-part activity, students:
- Use models and pedigrees to understand the chances of inheriting the gene for Huntington's disease.
- Weigh benefits and risks of genetic testing.
- Perform a simulated genetic test to determine if Jenny or other family members have inherited the gene for Huntington's disease.
