Figure 5.

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 [3]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.
