HDinHD (Huntington’s Disease in High Definition; HDinHD.org) is an open online portal for the HD research community that presents a synthesized view of HD-related, largely pre-clinical, scientific data.
The goal of HDinHD is to foster and support a collaborative community united in its drive to accelerate the development of therapeutics that will delay the onset and/or ameliorate the effects of Huntington’s disease. HDinHD seeks to achieve this through:
We highlight several components from HDinHD’s Downloads and Tools sections below.

Molecular signatures in mouse striatum
Our partners at Rancho BioSciences performed a comprehensive analysis of gene and protein data generated from an allelic series of knock-in (KI) mice containing an increasing number of CAG repeats. A 266 striatal gene disease signature and a 115 striatal protein disease signature were developed and validated in external datasets. These signatures represent molecular readouts of disease progression in models of HD mice, further characterize their HD-related phenotype and can be useful in the preclinical evaluation of candidate therapeutic interventions.
The Downloads section of HDinHD includes a Striatum Disease signature section, containing the following:
