Global and disease-group genetic testing is replacing single-gene molecular diagnostics. Bullich et al. demonstrate that gene panel analysis can result in a high yield of genetic diagnoses in cystic and familial glomerular populations. As the complexity of defining specific inherited kidney diseases becomes more apparent, a broader role for panel-based genomic testing in nephrology is now warranted. The resulting firm diagnosis can inform family planning decisions and aid prognostics and patient management.
