Dendrogram comparison

Hello Netters,

We are trying to compare the dendrograms/cladograms
derived using different repetitive DNA probes for a single
set of approx. 100 bacterial strains.  What's the best way
to compare the robustness of groupings defined by the
different probes?  Some probes give higher 
intergroup/intragroup genetic distance ratios than others.
We're not sure what would be the best combination of
phylogenetic and/or statistical analyses.

Sorry about this ignorant question and thanks for
any suggestions.

Rebecca Nelson
