Figure 2. Evolutionary relationships of 54 dengue virus type 3 (DENV-3) gene sequencesThe phylogenetic tree was obtained by using the maximum-likelihood method based on the Kimura 2-parameter model and MEGA 5 software (http://www.megasoftware.net/)The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (1,000 replicates) is shown for values >90Each strain is labeled by country of origin/strain name/GenBank accession number (if available)Black diamonds indicate DENV-3 strains sequenced in this study that were isolated during the DENV-3 epidemic in the Solomon Islands in 2013Black triangles indicate DENV-3 strains sequenced in this study that were isolated during the DENV-3 epidemic in French Polynesia in 2013Genotypes are indicated on the right side of the treeScale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
