Genetic testing?

What is genetic testing? It is the process of using medical tests to look for clinically relevant changes in a person's genes. 

Genetic testing has utility in

-Diagnosis
-Prognosis
-Therapeutic decision making

Currently, genetic testing for Wolfram is useful for making diagnosis and estimating prognosis. I believe that it will be useful for therapeutic decision making in the next few years. I feel that genetic testing will be a critical component in many aspects of healthcare management.
