|1The sequences that are loaded into TCW (e.g. transcripts, proteins) are searched against one or more databases for annotation;
these annotation databases are referred to as "AnnoDBs". When UniProt is used for annotation, TCW provides GO, KEGG,
EC, Interpro and Pfam annotations.
|2TCW can be used with already assembled transcripts, proteins or mRNA (e.g. predicted genes with introns removed),
i.e. the assembly is not usually necessary now.
Though the TCW assembly does not work for high-throughput sequencing reads, it is still occasionally useful for Sanger ESTs or assembling multiple sets of transcripts.
