Phylogenetic relationship of the hemagglutinin (HA) gene of representative H5N1 influenza virus strains isolated in Southeast Asia from 2003 through 2006. Analysis was based on nucleotides 1–1012 (1,012 bp) of the HA gene. Viruses isolated in Lao People's Democratic Republic in 2004 and 2006 are underlined. The strain isolated from ducks in Vientiane in February 2006 is shaded.
