Jenny is a young woman with a family history of Huntington’s disease (an inherited disease caused by a defective dominant gene). 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.
