Phylogenetic analyses of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) from dromedary camels. Genomic (A), spike (B), and nucleocapsid (C) sequences of the dromedary camel MERS-CoV NRCE-HKU205 (GenBank accession no. KJ477102) were aligned with the corresponding human MERS-CoV (N = 25) sequences retrieved from GenBank (accession nos. as in Figure 1 legend). Phylogenetic trees were constructed by using MEGA5 (14) with neighbor-joining method. Numbers at nodes indicate bootstrap values de
