  • Review the contributing guidelines for this repository; remember in particular:
    • do not modify code without testing for regression

    • if you change the schema you must patch the test databases as well, see Updating the schema
    • the PR must not fail unit testing



There are 3 main available Transcript tags (TSL, GENCODE Basic and APPRIS) On a Transcript object, the first 2 can be fetched with the tsl() and gencode_basic() methods, but there is no equivalent method to retrieve the appris tags.

This adds the missing appris() to Transcript. It returns the tag string (if available) or undef. This is the same behaviour as in tsl().

Use case

Describe the problem. Please provide an example representing the motivation behind the need for having these changes in place.
