Figure. Neighbor-joining tree of full-genome Mayaro virus sequences. The tree was inferred from pairwise distances estimated with the best fitting nucleotide substitution model (general time reversible plus gamma). The tree includes the isolate from Haiti identified in this study (in boldface) and all full-genome sequences with known country of origin and sampling date downloaded from GenBank. Branches are drawn according to the scale bar at the bottom, which indicates nucleotide substitutions per site. An asterisk along a branch indicates bootstrap support >90% for the subtending clade.
