Genetic Distance Results
The Genetic Distance Results tab is shown below:
The Genetic Distance Results tab contains the following elements:
The Heat Map shows the hierarchical clustering of the genetic distances calculated in this process. The colors on the right dendrogram indicate either groups of samples as determined by the clustering algorithm or indicate categories. In general, the “warmer” (more red) the color, the more closely related the individuals. The block circled in the heat map above is an example of one such closely related group. The adjacent”colder” (more blue) blocks represent less closely related samples.
Populations with smaller genetic distance measures are more genetically similar. In this example, JPT and CHB (Japanese and Chinese populations) are very close as measured by Reynolds' distance. Conversely, the Yoruban population is more genetically distinct from JPT and CHB.
