WinBoot: A program for performing bootstrap analysis of binary data to determine the confidence limits of UPGMA-based dendrograms

I.V. Yap, R.J. Nelson

Data obtained from molecular analysis, such as DNA sequences or banding patterns (fingerprints), are often used as basis for classifying individuals in a population and for making evolutionary or phylogenetic inferences. Dendrograms are constructed based on the degrees of similarity between individuals. The confidence limits for the groupings produced by dendrograms, however, are not generally amenable to computation by the usual statistical procedures.
