 en Relationship between BiologicaI Behaviour and Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA Profiles of Trypanosoma cruzi Strains
Rafael A Martínez-Díaz; José A Escario; Juan J Nogal-Ruiz & Alicia Gómez-Barrio

Abstract

Once known some biological characteristics of six Trypanosoma cruzi strains, randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was made. Cluster analysis by UPGMA (unweighted pair group method analysis) was then applied both to biological parameters and RAPD profiles. Inspection of the UPGMA phenograms indicates identical clusters, so supporting that usefulness of biological parameters to characterization of T. cruzi strains still remains.
