Figure 2

Phylogenetic tree showing the relationship between the Ebola viruses that caused outbreaks of disease in Gabon and previously described filoviruses (5). The entire coding region for the glycoprotein gene of the viruses shown was used in maximum parsimony analysis, and a single most parsimonious tree was obtained. Numbers in parentheses indicate bootstrap confidence values for branch points and were generated from 500 replicates (heuristic search). Branch length values are also shown.
