Kappaphycus sp. belongs to the family of red algae and is one of the most important commercial sources of carrageenans. As
the 18S gene of the whole DNA codes for the conserved segment in the eukaryotic organisms that speaks about the personal
identity of the organisms , these sequences have been used to describe the genetic relation of Kappaphycus sp. with that of other
algae. The Clustal X and Tree View analysis of these sequences has shown the diversity and convergence in the genetic identity
matrix created for the selected reference sequences and the Kappaphycus sp. sequences used. This has enabled us to design the
genetic identity matrix thus enabling the explanation of the relation that the algae Kappaphycus sp. demonstrated with other algae.
