that is part of a transcriptional unit
See documentation of methods
A UTR is a Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::ExonI compliant object that is non-coding, and
can be either 5' or 3' in a transcript.

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive
experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please
include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if
at all possible.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal
methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : new
Function: We override the constructor here to set is_coding to false
unless explicitly overridden.
Title : primary_tag
Usage : $tag = $feat->primary_tag()
Function: Returns the primary tag for a feature,
eg 'utr5prime'. This method insures that 5prime/3prime information
is uniformly stored
Returns : a string
Args : none
