Figure. Phylogenetic trees constructed on the partial (245 aa) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (panel A, RdRp) (open reading frame [ORF] 1b) and the full-length capsid precursor (panel B, ORF2) amino acid sequences. Black circles indicate strain identified in this study. The trees were constructed by using a selection of astrovirus (AstV) strains. Country names are abbreviated. Scale bars indicate the number of amino acid substitutions per 100 residues. Bootstrap values <90% are not shown. CSL, California sea lion; ANV, avian nephritis virus.
