Phylogenetic trees of the full-length nucleotide sequences of the group A rotavirus (RVA) nonstructural protein (NSP) genes. Phylogenetic trees were constructed by using the neighbor-joining method with the Kimura 2-parameter method. Bootstrap values (1,000 replicates) >70% are shown. Filled circle indicates strain RVA/human-wt/TUN/17237/2008/G6P[9] from Tunisia, filled triangles indicate the feline RVA strains, and open triangles indicate the feline/canine-like human RVA strains.
