It's Those Annoying CAG Repeats!

"It's Those Annoying Cag Repeats! A Huntington's Disease Pedigree Using Direct Genetic Testing" directs students to make a pedigree of a fictitious local family in which Huntington's Disease is found. Students use the number of CAG repeats on the DNA molecules of family members to predict inheritance and severity of HD. Role playing for practice in decision making involving genetic testing may also be included.
