Abstract

The article describes two new clustering algorithms for DNA nucleotide sequences, summarizes the results of experimental analysis of performance of these algorithms for an ITS-sequence data set, and compares the results with known biologically significant clusters of this data set. It is shown that both algorithms are efficient and can be used in practice.
