Figure 2

Phylogenetic tree showing sequence analysis of human Metapneumovirus (HMPV). Isolates prefixed with L were obtained from GenBank and represent isolates from the Netherlands. Isolates prefixed with 00hL are from this study; the following number indicates strain designations throughout the season: a, sample from an adult; c, sample from a child (<15 years). Scale shown is proportional to number of nucleotide substitutions per site.
