Figure. Phylogenetic tree constructed by using the neighbor-joining method based on the 9 porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) sequences identified in a study of porcine epidemic diarrhea in China. Partially amplified spike genes of the PEDV isolates plus 18 PEDV sequences downloaded from GenBank were compared. Sequences included in each cluster are listed in Technical Appendix Table 3. Strains from Thailand and China and the CV777 vaccine strain are indicated. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
