Figure 2. . . Maximum clade credibility tree generated by MrBayes in Geneious version 6.0.5 (www.geneious.com/) using amino acid sequences from 7 open reading frames (final chain length 240,000 at an average SD of split frequencies of zero) for poxviruses. Clade credibility values are indicated at each node.The virus isolated in this study is shown in boldface. Amsacta moorei (red hairy caterpiller) entomopoxvirus (Moyer) was used as the outgroup. Scale bar indicates amino acid substitutions per site.
