Cophenetic Correlation Coefficient (CCC) utilization for dendrogram. The CCC determines suitable algorithms for dendrogram the combination of 24 different (six pairwise-distance and four linkage) algorithms used to find most two suitable algorithms for the dendrogram plot. The optimization criteria using CCCs applied for 24 combined algorithms are also shown in Table 3. The algorithms used for pairwise-distance and linkage methods and CCC application operated from MATLAB version 6.5.
