# Gene panels

Everything in ELLA revolves around gene panels, and they're an essential part of the configuration. Note that a gene panel doesn't have to be a targeted panel in the traditional sense, but can include all genes in the exome if desired.

For details on how gene panels suitable for ELLA should be made, see the README (opens new window) in the separate repository Genepanel builder (opens new window).

To add a new gene panel, run the following command:

ella-cli deposit genepanel --folder <path to gene panel directory>

See Genepanel store (opens new window) repository src/vardb/testdata/clinicalGenePanels/ for examples of complete gene panels.
