Feature/stop codon readthrough edit

Marek Szuba requested to merge feature/stop_codon_readthrough_edit into master

Created by: s-mm


ENSCORESW-3110- Feature to handle stop codon readthrough in amino acid sequence.

Use case

At the moment, for a set of 12 transcripts, the stop codon readthrough is identified by an asterisk. This feature will modify the amino acid sequence to display the stop codon readthrough with an 'X'.


This will bring stop codon readthrough representation in line with the stop codon readthrough representation in RefSeq.

Possible Drawbacks



One dummy test added in translation.t which executes successfully. An actual test case cannot be added at the moment as sequences containing asterisk representation for stop codon readthrough is unavailable in core database. This is available in loutre database.
