DeSignate is an innovative tool for detecting diagnostic molecular characters (= signature characters) and their positions for complementing taxon diagnoses. The analysis is based on a novel representation of the gene sequence data, which enables a ranking of all alignment positions (= molecular character) according to their classification and diagnostic relevance.

DeSignate is also able to detect diagnostic character combinations (= combined alignment positions). The tool guides the user step-by-step through the analysis and presents the results without need to post-process the output data.
