# Description
When considering a set of aligned sequences, identical character states can be homoplasic (_i.e._ convergent evolution), or synapomorphic (acquired by descent).
When considering a set of aligned sequences, identical character states can be [homoplasic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homoplasy) (_i.e._ convergent evolution), or [synapomorphic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synapomorphy_and_apomorphy) (acquired by descent).
This scripts aims at finding shared character states inside a multiple sequences alignment irrespective of the evolution of the sequences.
It takes as input a fasta file containing aligned sequences, and a list of sequences whose name match those in the alignment.
The output is a list of the shared character states followed by an entropy score - the closest is the score to 1, the more the result is significant.
