Annotations derive from different sources:
- Sequences downloaded from databases like GenBank are annotated.
- In some of the data formats that can be imported into CLC Genomics Workbench, sequences can have annotations (GenBank, EMBL and Swiss-Prot format).
- The result of a number of analyses in CLC Genomics Workbench are annotations on the sequence (e.g. finding open reading frames and restriction map analysis). You can manually add annotations to a sequence (described in the Adding annotations).
Note! Annotations are included if you export the sequence in GenBank, Swiss-Prot, EMBL or CLC format. When exporting in other formats, annotations are not preserved in the exported file.
