I have added the original references proposing the existence and search for “Majorana zero modes” in nanowires:

Though at this point this may be mostly of historical interest. In any case, I think I should split off an entry Majorana zero mode, in order not to overburden the entry here with that story.
added the following pointer for the result that $su(2)$-anyons provide universal quantum gates not only at level $k=3$ (which is the result always mentioned) but for all higher $k$, too:
