Comment on list classification: Gene added to panel and rated Green by Zornitza Stark. Sufficient evidence and appropriate phenotype (progressive microcephaly seen in all patients with available data) for inclusion on panel: 22 patients from 15 families all with the same variant identified in PMID:31820119. Therefore there is sufficient evidence to rate this gene as Green at the next GMS panel update.
