Abstract

Hierarchical clustering algorithms are frequently used in constructing phylogenetic trees of protein sequences. Hierarchical clustering is the recursive clustering of data points. Similarity is computed by measuring the distance between elements. Relationship between data is visually denoted by dendrogram. Single linkage, average linkage, complete linkage and Ward's linkage are some of frequently used hierarchical clustering algorithms.
