This paper proposes the clustering of individuals given their genotype using a normalized Mutual Information dissimilarity distance. This method is applied to a Single Nucleotyde Polymorphism set belonging to F7 gene, uncovering the intrinsic genetic variability on one Spanish population. This genetic variability corresponds to results published using a complete different approach in population genetics literature. Identified groups are shown to express significant differences in the level of FVII concentration.
