Phylogenetic relationships among genotypes 1–4, wild boar, rabbit, avian (bird), and rat hepatitis E virus (HEV) isolates. The nucleic acid sequence alignment was performed by using ClustalX 1.81 (www.clustal.org). The genetic distance was calculated by the Kimura 2-parameter method. A phylogenetic tree with 1,000 bootstrap replicates was generated by the neighbor-joining method, based on the entire genome (A) and open reading frame 3 (B) of the genotypes 1–4, wild boar, rabbit, chicken (avian),
