Neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree of 60 specimens of rabies virus from the People’s Republic of China, 2005–2007, based on a 720-nt (nt 704–nt 1423) nucleoprotein (N) gene fragment of rabies virus rooted with the Pasteur strain of rabies virus (PV). Numbers at each node indicate degree of bootstrap support; only those with support >70% are indicated. Taxa are from Hunan Province are shown in red, taxa are from Guangxi Province in black, and taxa are from Guizhou Province in blue. City, year

Taxa are from Hunan Province are shown in red, taxa are from Guangxi Province in black, and taxa are from Guizhou Province in blue. City, year of sample collection, and GenBank accession no. are included for each taxon. Stars indicate human samples; others are dog samples.
