UPGMA dendrogam showing the sequence similarities among the excised DGGE bands (numbers 1-27 in Figure 4) V3 16S rRNA gene sequences and previously obtained endophytic bacterial full length 16S rRNA gene sequences (indicated in bold). Cluster analysis was performed in BioNumerics using Pearson's correlation similarity coefficients. Similarity values above 80% are given above the branches. The positive or negative correlation between the sequence identification of a certain excised DGGE band and its position towards the marker bands (see Table 1), is indicated with + or -, respectively.
