Re ordering lines - Awk

Is it possible to re-order certain rows as columns (of large files).
Few lines from the file for reference.

Splicing Factor: Tra2beta, Motif: aaguguu, Cutoff: 0.5000
Sequence Position	Genomic Coordinate	K-mer     	Score   
97               	chr1:67052604     	uacuguu   	0.571   
147              	chr1:67052554     	augugua   	0.536   
166              	chr1:67052535     	aaauuuu   	0.500   
226              	chr1:67052475     	aauugug   	0.612   
Splicing Factor: SRp20, Motif: wcwwc, Cutoff: 0.7200
Sequence Position	Genomic Coordinate	K-mer     	Score   
302              	chr1:67052399     	ucauc     	0.875   
349              	chr1:67052352     	acauc     	0.740

If the blocks to be transposed fit into memory, you can read the data into a 2-dimensional array and then print them in the desired layout.
Have a look at to get an idea how this works.

% perl -0777 -lne '                                                            
# print header
for ( /^Splicing Factor.*?(?=Splicing Factor|\z)/msg ) {
  @data = split /\n/;                               
  # parse $data[0] and remember values
  # loop  @data[2..$#data] and print out all values

But I'm too lazy to write the real code instead of comments.

Try if the below one works..
awk 'BEGIN{FS="[, ]";print "Splicing_Facto Motif Cutoff Sequence_Score"}/Splicing/{v=$3;s=$6;c=$9};$0 !~ /Seq|Spli/{print v,s,c,$0}' inputfile
