A new generation of diagnostics leading to presymptomatic detection of genetic predisposition has grown out of the human genome project. Genetic and positional cloning approaches have identified a number of genes in which inherited mutations predispose to various disorders and syndromes, including specific cancers. Strongly predisposing alÃ-eles, "genes," have been identified for colon cancer, breast cancer, and many
