Dendrograms constructed by various distance functions, alphabet sizes and segment lengths . Control group = {1, 2, 3, 4}, PZQ = {5, 6, 7, 8}, Lovastatin = {9, 10, 11, 12}. Dendrograms constructed using SAX and MinDist with varying alphabet sizes and varying number of segments are shown in parts (1-6). For each case, the six segments (w = [3, 7, 17, 21, 51, 119]) resulted in the same clusters. In parts (7-12) dendrograms constructed by optimal segmentation and edit distance are shown. The dendrogram constructed using Euclidean distance is shown in (13). In parts (14-18) dendrograms constructed using the proposed method are depicted. In our method, different alphabet sizes did not lead to differences in clustering accuracy. In this figure the sequence number is shown on the X-axis and the distance values are shown on the Y-axis.
