Exclamation Re 'tagging' the tools in the wiki?

Many of the 'tags' for tools are not good, not giving an accurate picture of how the tools work or what they do. For example, the following kinds of tag are clearly important, but missing:

* short read alignment
* de novo assembly
* transcript assembly
* transcriptomics
* structural rearrangements

I'm happy to go through and clean up the tags, possibly dropping the distinction between 'biological domain' and 'bioinformatics method' (which were never thought through) and possibly adding other tag categories. However, before redesigning what was never properly designed in the first place, I though I should open it up to discussion.

Can anyone suggest useful tags or new tag categories?
