Advances in genomic technologies are revolutionizing the diagnostic approach to short stature. Endocrinologists must become facile with the use of molecular testing in order to identify various genetic disorders that present with short stature. Techniques that will be discussed include GWAS, candidate gene analysis, whole exome or whole genome scanning, and microarrays.
