Proposed reassortment events leading to the novel central Europe HPAIV A(H5N8) clade 2.3.4.4 virus. The Russia–Mongolia reassortant clade 2.3.4.4 H5N8 virus acquired 2 new segments (polymerase acidic protein and nucleoprotein), leading to the novel central Europe clade 2.3.4.4 H5N8 in 2016. Similar segment origins are marked by similar colors. Dashed lines indicate putative precursors. HPAIV, highly pathogenic avian influenza virus; LPAIV, low pathogenicity avian influenza virus.
