We have been studying Trypanosoma cruzi using RAPD and DNA
fingerprinting. We use the distance metric (1-S) where S is the
proportion of shared bands between any two strains. With these data we
build a distance matrix and use UPGMA to get a tree. We have not found
any program that will do a bootstrap on this distance matrix data. Can
anybody suggest one?

Many thanks,
