Figure 2

Phylogenetic relationships of Lassa virus strains based on a nucleoprotein gene fragment (631 bp) determined by using the neighbor-joining method. The numbers above branches are bootstrap values >50% (1,000 replicates). Scale bar indicates 10% divergence. Localities are indicated by the specimen label: DGD (Denguédou), BA (Bantou), GB (Gbetaya), and TA (Tanganya).
