    • do not modify code without testing for regression
    • provide simple unit tests to test the changes
    • if you change the schema you must patch the test databases as well, see Updating the schema
    • the PR must not fail unit testing


Change parser to utilize Text::CSV. Change parser to use ZFIN files that now contain four columns. Rename functions for clarity

Restrict Uniprot source to only use SwissProt

Use case

Parser is updated to meet new xref standards (Text::CSV). Cleanup for readability. Should now work with ZFIN source files


See under Use Case

Possible Drawbacks

Adds dependency to Text::CSV.


Parser works and adds xrefs in the context of the xref pipeline as it stands in early November.
