Figure 2. . Phylogenetic trees of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) strains generated by the neighbor-joining method with nucleotide sequences of the full-length spike genes. Bootstrapping with 1,000 replicates was performed to determine the percentage reliability for each internal node. Horizontal branch lengths are proportional to genetic distances between PEDV strains. Black circles indicate PEDV field isolates from the 2011 outbreak in China. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
