Phylogenetic tree, based on a 330-bp amplicon of the Seoul virus (SEOV) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene, depicted in FigTree1.4.0 (http://www.molecularevolution.org/software/phylogenetics/figtree). The tree was generated by using the uncorrelated lognormal distribution relaxed molecular clock model and SRD06 substitution model in BEAST1.74 (7).
