Reading/Writing methods

toMixedCase(@regexps)

Convert gene names to mixed case, according to one or more regular expressions. This is typically useful for converting uppercase ORF numbers to mixed case. E.g. the E.coli gene "B1563" converted with the regexp '(b(\d{4}(\.\d)?))' will yield the gene name "b1563". The method also supports fused gene names, e.g. "B0690/B0691" is converted to "b0690/b0691". The method changes the text of the SWISS::GN object and also returns the new text value.
