Backport UCSCParser, UCSC_human_parser and UCSC_mouse_parser from ensembl-xref

Marek Szuba requested to merge backport/ENSCORESW-3231 into feature/xref_sprint

Created by: mkszuba


Port changes made to UCSCParser (as well as the two thin wrappers around it used for human and mouse) in ensembl-xref, including unit tests, back to ensembl:feature/xref_sprint.

Use case

See ENSCORESW-3231. Originally worked on by Mag.


Salvage more work from the 2018 xref sprint. Actually get UCSC xrefs back (their file format has changed) once ensembl:feature/xref_sprint has been merged into master.

Possible Drawbacks

Increased test-suite run time (note: Travis does not automatically execute tests from misc-scripts/xref_mapping yet).


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


If so, do the tests pass/fail?

They pass.

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

Yes (including tests from misc-scripts/xref_mapping), no regression detected.
