Here, we discuss recent progress on our understanding of the genetic anomalies that impact directly on the specification and development of the somatic cell compartment of the human gonad. Several new genes and pathways have been identified in the last 5 years associated with human disorders of sex development (DSD). New methods and analytical approaches, including comparative genomic hybridization and next-generation sequencing technologies, are beginning to provide deeper insights into the complexities and alterations of the genetic architecture that are associated with human DSD. The challenges as well as the research opportunities for the future are highlighted as efforts are made to bridge the gap between an increasing quantity of genetic information and the underlying biology.
