Figure 2. Phlyogenetic analysis of northern German bat coronaviruses (CoV) (lineages 1–4) and related group I CoVs from bats and other mammals. Analyses were conducted in MEGA4 (32), by using the neighbor-joining algorithm with Kimura correction and a bootstrap test of phylogeny. Numbers at nodes denote bootstrap values as percentage of 1,000 repetitive analyses. The phylogeny is rooted with a Leopard CoV, ALC/GX/F230/06 (33). The column on the right shows bat CoV prototype strain names or the designations of type strains of established mammalian CoV species.
