Phylogenetic analysis of the fusion (F) gene of 64 human metapneumovirus (HMPV) strains recovered from various countries (CAN, Canada; RSA, Republic of South Africa; FRA, France; AUS, Australia; NETH, the Netherlands). Neighbor-Joining consensus tree was obtained from the nucleic acid alignment representing nucleotides 60–708 of the HMPV prototype sequence NETH-001. Numbers represent the frequency of occurrence of nodes in 500 bootstrap replicas.
