Figure 2. Phylogenetic relationship of the polymerase basic 2 (PB2) gene of influenza A viruses isolated in Vietnam from 2006 to 2007. Numbers above and below branches indicate neighbor-joining and Bayesian posterior probabilities, respectively. Analyses were based on nt 986–2,288 of the PB2 gene. The tree was rooted to equine/Prague/1/56. Viruses names described in this study are shown in colored text; previously described Vietnam isolates are shown in bold italic text. #Denotes a clade 2.3.4 and clade 1 reassortant virus.
