quiddich-package: QUick IDentification of DIagnostic CHaracters

Description Author(s)


The package QUIDDICH provides tools for an automated identification of diagnostic molecular characters, i.e. such columns in a given nucleotide or amino acid alignment that allow to distinguish taxa from each other. These characters can be used to complement formal descriptions of taxa, which are often based on morphological and anatomical features. Especially for morphologically cryptic species, this is helpful. QUIDDICH distinguishes between four different types of diagnostic characters. For more information, see "Kuehn, A.L., Haase, M. 2019. QUIDDICH: QUick IDentification of DIagnostic CHaracters."
