This mode is used to split transcripts in FASTA format into multiple files. The mode will distribute the transcripts for the same gene across multiple files such that two transcripts from the same gene are never present in the same file. The split files can be used as reference to implement transcript searches.. It is implemented by edu.cornell.med.icb.goby.modes.SplitTranscriptsMode.java.
