Figure 1. Phylogenetic reconstruction of the H1 genes of influenza viruses A (H1N1) in Norway, 2007–08 season. The analysis was performed on an alignment spanning positions 84–1054 of viral RNA segment 4. Pairwise distances were calculated by using the Kimura 2-parameter model with a transition:transversion ratio of 2.0; the phylogenetic tree was constructed by the neighbor-joining method, as implemented in the programs DNADIST and NEIGHBOR in the PHYLIP package (1415,). Published sequences were obtained from the Influenza Sequence Database, Los Alamos National Laboratory (16). Boldface indicates viruses from the 2007–08 influenza season in Norway; red indicates oseltamivir-resistant viruses; blue, susceptible viruses. New sequences presented in this analysis have been deposited in GenBank (accession nos. CY036664–CY036694).
