Can prokka be used to annotate a set of protein sequences (so bulk protein annotation), or does it require an entire genome for the annotation?

I've been looking through the documentation but haven't found a clear answer to this. I tested it, and the annotation of my protein sequences worked, but I wanted to check if the program expected a genome and that I can trust the output.

Thanks!

Prokka doesn't need whole genomes, I've definitely used it for smaller contigs before so I think you're fine!
