Figure 5. Phylogenetic tree of H1N1 influenza A viruses for HA nucleotide sequences. Five recent vaccine strains were included along with the 24 Taiwanese strains and six reference strains considered previously in Figure 4. The tree was rooted with A/Puerto Rico/8/34. Sequence analysis was conducted using the software Lasergene, Clustal W, and PHYLIP with 1,000 replicates. Sequences contained 561 to 564 nt bases from positions 120 to 683, based on A/Puerto Rico/8/34.
