The dendrogram from cluster analysis revealed two distinct groups among the Saccharum species.
A neighbor-joining (NJ) (Saitou and Nei, 1987) dendrogram was constructed by using PHYLIP 3.
The lower cluster in the darter dendrogram showed that the Saline and the Caddo-Ouachita basins were closely similar with respect to darters, joined next by the Little Missouri basin, and finally at a lesser similarity by the Little River basin.
The obtained values of similarity were used to establish the dendrogram generated by UPGMA showing the relationships among the different rootstocks.
Comparing dendrograms obtained from the Smouse and Peakall (1999), Kosman and Leonard (2005) coefficients and weighted index, it was verified that the last coefficient provided the complete separation of inbred lines 52B[C.
Nevertheless, the pedigree- and RFLP-based dendrograms were somewhat similar, indicating that pedigree information will continue to be useful to inexpensively identify diverse parents in a breeding program.
5) was used to perform bootstrap resampling of gene frequencies to obtain a genetic distance UPGMA (unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic averaging) dendrogram.
These results were illustrated in the dendrogram established with the results of SSR and RAPD markers, which was divided into 2 distinct branches.
Average cluster analysis was performed on the morphological data by SAS CLUSTER procedure and Euclidean distance as the dissimilarity index, and a dendrogram was constructed with the results.
For each age group, only one isolate from each of the three small outbreak clusters was included in the temporal analyses; however, all isolates were included in the serogroup distribution, description of serogroup C strains in 1998-1999, and the PFGE dendrogram.
The similarity matrices were used to construct the dendrogram for all 96 accessions using SAHN of NTSYS-pc (Rohlf, 2000) based on UPGMA.
However, since the main part of genome consisted of non-coding parts, another reason for the lack of correlation between the two dendrograms was distribution of selected RAPD primers at all levels of genomes Mc (Clean et al.
