Similarly, species or variety-wise separation of different accessions of dragon fruits in the dendrogram constructed from morpho logical, ISSR and RAPD data was reported by Tao et al.
Interestingly, based on dendrogram cluster analysis of ERIC-PCR fingerprint data, a single genetically-related cluster (Cluster D) was shown to account for 47 of the 56 (84%) CRAB isolates.
The spectroscopic data set dendrogram of temporal analysis split into two separate groups the drugs, TP and LS.
The dendrogram generated by the Simpson similarity coefficient (Fig.
Said establishment was grouped together with the other schools, far from the other centers in the dendrogram.
Additionally these species clusters were also almost coherent with the results of TWINSPAN dendrogram. Some of the species had unique characteristics and were separate from the communities.
At genus level, hierarchical dendrogram based on the Bray-Curtis distances was calculated using Vegan package (v.2.4-4) [35] and gplots package (v.3.0.1) [36] in the R programing language version (3.4.0) 2016 [37].
Hierarchical cluster analysis of the above gross morphology character state matrix (Table 5) resulted in the following average linkage dendrogram (Figure 7).
Based on the ERIC-PCR dendrogram generated, there is also a lack of relatedness between the identity of pathogenic Leptospira and fingerprinting profile.
The dendrogram was constructed using maximum likelihood (ML) methods, respectively, using PHYLIP, the Phylogeny Inference Package program.
In this regard, the hierarchical dendrogram contains significant information related to early damage detection; it merges a pair of clusters based on their distances and defines a new higher level.
