Genetic Characterization of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Viruses, Ethiopia, 1981–2007
Figure 5. Midpoint-rooted neighbor-joining tree (based on the complete virus protein 1 coding sequence) showing the relationships between the foot-and-mouth disease virus serotype Southern African Territories (SAT) 2 isolates from Ethiopia and other contemporary and reference viruses. The SAT 2 isolates from Ethiopia under lineage IV, XIII, and IVX are boxed. The year in parenthesis indicates the year of sample collection. Scale bar indicates substitutions per site. *Not a reference number assigned by the World Reference Laboratory for Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Pirbright, UK.
