Three-dimensional MDS plot seen from dimension X and Y (A) and Y and Z (B) visualizing the similarities among the endophytic (EN-2009), epiphytic (EP), washing water (WW) and cultivation water (CW) DGGE fingerprints. The MDS plot was derived from the similarity matrix generated during the DGGE cluster analysis (Figure 2). Clusters 1 till 5 (B) surround the EP, WW and CW fingerprints (reduced into one point in the plot) of Bryopsis samples MX19, MX90, MX164, MX263 and MX344, respectively.
