FusionTranscript is a PreTranscript built from two parent PreTranscripts. It has most of the same functionality as a regular PreTranscript except that it will not have a parent gene and retains a mapping of the new exons to the exons in the PreTranscript they originated from
Additionally the FusionTranscript is always constructed on the positive strand.
The preferred way to construct a FusionTranscript is through the build method.

PRIME: 5' or 3'
AttributeError: if the orientation of the breakpoint or the strand of the transcript is not specified
