Allows users to annotate transcripts by the integration of sequence similarity searches and functional motif predictions. TACT is a web application integrating two kinds of similarity searches, BLASTX and FASTY, against protein sequence databases and a unified motif prediction program, InterProScan. The computational analyses can be divided into three pipelines; sequence analysis, ORF prediction and auto-functional annotation pipelines.
