Classification, clustering, and phylogeny estimation

Dear Sir;

I'm  teaching computer sciences and data anlysis at the Higher Institut of
Management in Tunis (Tunisia).
I'm also doing research on clustering and precesily on clustering binary
I generate a method which does not need the number of clusters to be given
(like fastclus in SAS for example or other soft).
I'm actually testing my method with others  among samples from papers.
My method gives nearly same partition and some times better.
The big population on which I tryied my method is composed of 59
I'm looking for binary data with an associate partition to compare my
method, so could you please help me in this.
I'm sorry because I do not really send you a message corresponding to you
request, because I'm far from USA, so I'm not able to go away from long time
from my country.
I also send you some references on my research (besides my courses I give on
data analysis, SAS, data bases, Oracle):
