Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree constructed by using a multiple alignment of ≈550-bp amplicons, consisting of the partial DNA polymerase gene of the novel bat adenovirus 2 strain Pipistrellus pipistrellus virus 1 (in boldface; GenBank accession no. FJ983127) and selected members of the family Adenoviridae, Germany. Alignment was analyzed with the neighbor-joining method and p-distance model in MEGA4 (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values (1,000 replicates) >35% are indicated at the branch nodes. Branch length is proportional to evolutionary distance (scale bar). Adenovirus genera are indicated.
