The Calculate Color Groups Statistic command allows to compare the distances of Samples in two color groups. This might be useful o check the distances between Samples of subtrees or between outbreak and non-outbreak Samples.

For each of the two color groups the following values are calculated based on the currently selected columns for distance calculation (if a group contains more than one Sample):

  • Minimum distance within group
  • Maximum distance within group
  • Average distance within group

If both color groups contain Samples, the following additional values are calculated:

  • Minimum distance between groups
  • Maximum distance between groups
  • Average distance between groups
  • Average distance of Samples in first groups to closest Sample in second group
