Identification is a branch of systematics. It is the act and
the result of determining whether a new isolate belongs to a
group derived from classification. The organism is given a
name by recognising that it is a member of a previously
defined taxon. In making an identification the unknown
organism is examined and its characters are compared with
those of characteristic organisms or descriptions of
characteristic organisms.  Identification makes use of
weighted characters, that is, those which have been shown to
be significant in distinguishing one organism from another. In
this it differs markedly from classification, in which
unweighted characters are preferable.
