Enable VGNC xrefs for felis_catus, macaca_mulatta and microcebus_murinus

Marek Szuba requested to merge feature/vgnc_xrefs into master

Created by: mkszuba


Enable production of VGNC xrefs for additional three species: cat, macaque, mouse lemur. See ENSCORESW-3173.

Use case

VGNC has recently begun to provide data for these three species and have requested Ensembl to enable production of corresponding xrefs.


More VGNC xrefs in Ensembl.

Possible Drawbacks

Increased run time of the xref pipeline. That said, a single run of VGNCParser takes in the order of seconds so it will not be a large increase.


Have you added/modified unit tests to test the changes?


If so, do the tests pass/fail?


Have you run the entire test suite and no regression was detected?

Yes, no regression detected. I have also run VGNCParser in standalone mode on the three new species and the output seems to make sense.
