Phylogeography of Japanese Encephalitis Virus: Genotype Is Associated with Climate
The coloring of the chart corresponds to the map and shows the relative proportions of viral sequences sampled from each country according to genotype. Of note, GI viruses have also been isolated in India, Laos and Malaysia, GII viruses have also been isolated in Papua New Guinea and Thailand, and GIII viruses have also been isolated in Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, the former Soviet Union and Thailand. These viruses were not included in this study, as the E gene of these viruses has not been sequenced. The estimated dates (95% HPD interval) and locations for the MRCA of JEV, as well as its five genotypes are also shown.
