A woman heterozygous for Huntington diseae reproduces with a man without the condition. Huntington disease is dominant; what are the chances the child will have the condition? The chances the child will not have the condition?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 1, 2020, 11:24 pm ad1c9bdddf
50% chance for the child having the disease
50% chance for the child not having the disease
