Figure 6

Phylogram of dengue serotype 3 (DENV-3) genotype III viruses from Sri Lanka (SL), 1981–2004, and other DENV-3 genotype III viruses. The tree is based on a 966-bp fragment for positions 179–1144 coding for a portion of the capsid protein, all of the premembrane protein, and a portion of the envelope protein. The tree was constructed as described in Figure 4 and rooted by using a DENV-3 genotype I virus (H87). Naming of the different groups within DENV-3 genotype III is based on the report by Mess
