Phylogenetic analysis with the Phylip software program of DNAdist (maximum likelihood/neighbor-joining, 1000 bootstrap cycles) of the carboxyl-terminal 456-bp nucleoprotein (N) gene sequence of measles virus/Vic.AU/24.99 circulating in Australia and East Timor. World Health Organization–designated prototype strains are shown in bold, and the proposed new g3 genotype is shown in bold and underlined. Jakarta 1999 (G2) has also been included to show the difference between the clade G viruses. Statistically significant bootstrap values (>80%) are indicated. Scale (0.01) indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
