Rare and common variants in ROM1 and PRPH2 genes trans-modify Stargardt/ABCA4 disease

Zernant et al. examine the role of rare and common genetic variants in unlinked loci for ABCA4-associated phenotypes. The study serves as an example for other, “simple monogenic” Mendelian diseases where careful consideration should be given to both rare and common variation in unlinked loci.
