Main Article

Figure 2

Hypothetical evolutionary pathway of influenza (H5N8) viruses from Qinghai Lake, China. Gene segments are colored according to their origins. Dashed virions indicate unidentified viruses. HA, hemagglutinin; LPAI, low pathogenicity avian influenza; MP, matrix protein; NA, neuraminidase; NP, nucleoprotein; NS, nonstructural protein; PA, acidic polymerase; PB, polymerase basic.
