Figure 2. . Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of eastern equine encephalitis virus strains, based on the complete E2 coding sequence. Numbers at the nodes indicate bootstrap confidence estimated by 1,000 neighbor-joining replicates on the maximum-likelihood tree. The tree was rooted with lineage II (Brazil56), III (Panama86), and IV (Brazil85) strains.
