Phylogenetic relationships of 27 rabies virus (RABV) genomes constructed by maximum-likelihood method. Numbers close to the nodes were from 1,000 bootstrap replications. The tree was rooted with RABV from bats and raccoons. Three major groups, Asia, Cosmopolitan, and India, are strongly supported, as indicated (17). There are 4 major lineages within the group from Asia, including previously recognized China I, China II (16), Southeast Asia, and RABV from Taiwan ferret badgers (TWFB). RABVs deriv
