Green List (high evidence)

Comment when marking as ready: As discussed in the GMS Gastrohepatology Specialist Test Group webex call 14th Jan 2019: The Specialist Test Group agreed that there is enough evidence to rate this gene green based on unpublished data from patient cohort from USA (2,000 patients at Emory) that this is one of the Zellweger genes with significant prevalence.
