Figure 2. SimPlot (http://sray.med.som.jhmi.edu/SCRoftware/simplot) analysis of the full-length sequences of the human parechovirus (HPeV) prototypes against PAK5045 query, based on nucleotide similarities. Each curve compares the PAK5045 genome with an HPeV prototype. The Kimura 2-parameter model was applied with a transition/transversion (Ts/Tv) ratio of 3.0 (5), and a sliding window of 600 nt with a step size of 10 nt was used.
