Merged requested to merge ZFINDesc_backport into feature/xref_sprint
Created by: tgrego
Port changes made to ZFINDescParser in ensembl-xref, including unit tests, back to ensembl:feature/xref_sprint.
Salvage more work from the 2018 xref sprint.
Increased test-suite run time (note: Travis does not automatically execute tests from misc-scripts/xref_mapping yet).
If so, do the tests pass/fail?
Have you run the entire test suite and no regression was detected?
