The SIGProtMIt is an in silico tool based upon the sequences of Conserved Signature proteins (CSPs) for rapid determination of the presence or absence of different organisms using next generation sequence data (techniques). This web-based tool is based upon a large dataset of validated CSPs that are uniquely found in particular (phyla) groups of organisms at multiple phylogenetic levels. These CSPs are also predicted to be present in other members of these groups, which have not yet been studied or sequenced. Hence, Blast searches with the sequences of  these CSPs (amino acid or nucleotide) provide a novel and highly specific mean for rapidly and reliably detecting the presence or absence of different organisms in the NGS dataset.
