Figure 1

Phylogenetic tree for the 189-bp sequence of open reading frame 2 of the capsid gene of rabbit hepatitis E virus (HEV) strains (circles), human strains circulating in France (triangles), and reference strains (diamonds). GenBank accession numbers are shown for each HEV strain used in the phylogenetic analysis. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
