Phylogenetic analysis based on full-length sequences of segment 2 in 2 EHDV serotype 1 isolates from Israel with global EHDVs and BTV-8 from GenBank. We analyzed 24 nucleotide sequences and inferred phylogenetic relationship by using the neighbor-joining method. Numbers below branches indicate bootstrap values. Recent isolates from Israel are marked with black circles. Viruses are identified by GenBank accession number, virus and serotype, 3-letter code of country (and additional information in

Figure. Phylogenetic analysis based on full-length sequences of segment 2 in 2 EHDV serotype 1 isolates from Israel with global EHDVs and BTV-8 from GenBank. We analyzed 24 nucleotide sequences and inferred phylogenetic relationship by using the neighbor-joining method. Numbers below branches indicate bootstrap values. Recent isolates from Israel are marked with black circles. Viruses are identified by GenBank accession number, virus and serotype, 3-letter code of country (and additional information in some cases), isolate identification (in most cases), and year of isolates. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA7 (8). Scale bar indicates number of nucleotide substitutions per site. BTV, bluetongue virus; EHDV, epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus.
