Genetic techniques have recently revolutionized the fields of research and diagnosis for a variety of disorders, including movement disorders. Research has moved from single-gene analysis to whole-genome assays, and these have greatly increased our knowledge of the aetiology of these diseases. In parallel, diagnosis using these approaches is becoming a reality that implies lower cost and a much shorter turnaround time. In this chapter we will discuss how these technologies have changed the field of molecular genetics of disease and how they are applicable to diagnostic approaches.
