Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of the viral protein (VP) 7 genotype G12 rotavirus of Indonesia with reference strains downloaded from GenBank. The GenBank accession numbers of each strain appear next to the strain. The multiple alignment was constructed by using ClustalX version 1.81 (www.clustal.org). The phylogenetic tree was based on the 971 nt sequence of the VP7 gene and constructed by using the neighbor-joining method and applying the Kimura 2-parameter method with 1,000 bootstrap replicates of the neighbor-joining model. The isolate identified is shown in boldface. Bootstrap values <50% are not shown. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
