Figure 1

Dendrograms based on ward linkage rescaled distance cluster combine. The difference of intestinal flora was thought to be greatest between active phase patients (group I) and non-consanguineous families (group IV). However, as seen, cluster analysis between group I and group IV by using all OTU values did not produce visible separation between group I and IV. This was considered to be a serious limitation of cluster analysis.
