Some differences and similarities were observed by examining the dendrogram obtained from morphological characteristic RAPD markers.
Hierarchical clustering is one of the major cluster analysis techniques that construct hierarchical structure of clusters through a two-dimensional diagram known as dendrogram.
They found that dendrogram analysis placed these genotypes into six groups and is consistent with their known origin.
Dendrogram and relative weights of the classes based on the percentage of text segments.
Subsequently, cluster-IIb further divided into sub-sub cluster where CDB 3 and CDB4 reveal same genetic relatedness according to dendrogram.
80 indicates a good fit between the original matrices of distance and the graph distances (Sokal and Rohlf, 1962), with cophenetic correlation being adequate, showing that the representativeness of the real distance between the genotypes by means of graphic representation of the dendrogram is trustworthy (Figure 1).
In the dendrograms the isolates were separated into two major clusters (A and B) between 76% and 96% (Fig.
For this procedure we use the dendrogram (the hierarchical tree diagram), which shows us when and which objects join together using the dissimilarities, such as distance, between them (Mooi, Sarstedt, 2011).
The clustering results can be visualized by a dendrogram that highlights the merging of the components due to the similarity criterion.
