Figure

Phylogenetic relationships among hantaviruses were estimated by using the Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo method implemented in MrBayes version 3.1.2 (8). The relationships were based on the initial 905-nt fragment of the small segment. The numerical value ≥0.7 at the node indicates the posterior probability replicates that supported the interior branch. The branch labels include GenBank accession number and virus species or strain. Boldface indicates the reference sequence; scale bar indicate
