Global Distribution of Rubella Virus Genotypes
|Window||G+C contenta||Transition/transversiona||Intergenotypic distancea,b
|Range||Mean||Mean RGI vs RGII||RGI
aStatistics were determined from all sequences listed in Table 1.
bThe range and mean of genetic distances (% difference) were determined by using all sequences. The mean rubella genotype I (RGI) vs. RGII was determined from all of the pairwise RGI-RGII combinations.
cThe range and mean of genetic distances were determined for RGI and RGII viruses separately.
