Ellen McDonagh (Genomics England Curator)

Green List (high evidence)

Comment on list classification: We discussed and agreed internally that all genes within the Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy (congenital with brain and eye anomalies) phenotypic series available on OMIM should be demoted to red, as it is unlikely that these conditions would present with cataracts as a main feature.
