Presumably, two strains that are similar to each other resemble each other with respect to similarity towards a third strain. An attempt to test this concept was made by a numerical analysis of a sample. The correlative similarity coefficient between two strains was defined as a correlative coefficient between their simple matching similarity coefficients to a third strain and was denoted by S. The two similarity coefficients were compared and employed for dendrogram preparation. As a result, it appeared that more reasonable clustering of strains was made and that the resemblance of each strain to all the others was well reflected with the use of S.
