After the results obtained by Numerical Taxonomy Model, the findings was put into GIS environment and ranking of provinces is formed into a map and finally classification was done through that technique.
The findings of the research have been practiced by using the Numerical Taxonomy Model in six above-mentioned stages (figure 1) as follows in detail:
A total of 397 isolates from different stages (seed, larval, and reproductive) of oyster, surrounding water and phytoplankton, selected as being representative of bacterial community, were characterized by numerical taxonomy.
The aim of our study was to select differential biochemical tests for a rapid identification of isolates after the identification by using the sequencing of 16S rRNA gene technique and numerical taxonomy analysis.
