16 (16%) respectively, but identical states still score 1. Distance coefficients Another coeffici'ent for quantitative data is taxonomic distance (d). The OTUs are viewed a'S points in a multidimensional space (hyperspace), with one dimension for each character, and resemblance is expressed as Euclidean distance. This is the shortest distance between two points whose positions are defined by axes at right angles to each other (the distance XZ in Fig. 2): d = ~(OTU Aa - OTU Ba)2 + (OTU Ab - OTU Bb)2 ...

The measure increases with the number of characters and is not a percentage, but ranges from zero (= 100% similarity) to infinity. 06 for the example). For binary data d = ~1 - SSM and is a measure of mismatches (~ and y above). X1 Euclidean distance y 0 x .... 12 -r-----,-----,------r-~--~ z o 2 3 4 Manhattan distance x .... y ....

This method is popular because it is rapid and requires only an ultraviolet spectrophotometer with a heated cell. The other method is less popular because an analytical ultracentrifuge is required for long periods. High-speed centrifugation of a caesium chloride solution yields a density gradient within which DNA will migrate to form a band where its density equals that of the gradient, and the mol % G+C is directly related to this buoyant density. O lllol% G+C respectively and both require a reference DNA of known mol% G+C, commonly that of Escherichia coli/ for comparison.
