Bayesian analysis of the G gene of human metapneumovirus (HMPV) isolated from an adult female mountain gorilla that died during an outbreak of respiratory disease, Rwanda. Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of sequence differences of the HPMV glycoprotein gene were conducted by using BEAST, BEAUti, and Tracer analysis software packages (http://beast.bio.ed.ac.uk/Main_Page). Only lineage B HMPVs are shown. The black dot indicates the strain newly isolated from the gorilla; trees are rooted at the mid
