Huntingtin and Huntington's Disease

This website was produced as an assignment for Genetics 677 at UW-Madison Spring 2009


In order to distinguish between the manner in which the Huntington's disease gene huntingtin has been presented to the public, I conducted reviews of the original scientific paper announcing the discovery of the protein as well as a popular press article relaying this information to the public.  A comparison between the two papers can be found on the Article Comparison page
