1. Gene file used should be of [http://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQformat#format9 GenePred table format]. The following 11 fields are required and must be of the same order as shown below:
string name; "Name of gene"
string chrom; "Chromosome name"
string symbol; "Standard gene symbol"
Note: the 11th field is a mandatory field for running vcfCodingSnps. In the genelists provided with the package, this field gives the standard gene symbols such as "APOE", "LDL-R"
2. If gene file assumes an [http://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQformat#format9 extended GenePred format], there will be an exctra "exonframe" field. Please refer to [https://lists.soe.ucsc.edu/pipermail/genome/2006-November/012218.html here] for the definition of "exonframe". For some genes, due to translational frame shifts or other
