Through advances in molecular medicine, the previous several decades of research have elucidated the fundamental genetic substrates underlying over 4000 genetic disorders, most of which are rare. Currently nearly 1000 genetic tests (www. genetest.org) are available clinically and are offered by more than 600 diagnostic laboratories worldwide. In addition, numerous genetic tests are available on a research basis.
