Avian viral surveillance in Victoria, Australia, and detection of two novel avian herpesviruses

Fig 3

Phylogenetic tree for the genus avulvirus of the family Paramyxoviridae based on partial RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene sequences.

Maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree constructed using PhyML from a ClustalW2 alignment of the partial RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (large polymerase or L protein) gene sequences of the avian avulavirus detected from a musk lorikeet (Glossopsitta concinna) in this study (unclassified avian avulavirus strain musk lorikeet/Melbourne/ML22-141263/2014; highlighted in bold) and published paramyxovirus sequences retrieved from GenBank [60]. The GenBank accession numbers for sequences used are indicated in brackets in the tip labels. Human rubulavirus 2 (highlighted in italics) is included as an outgroup. Branching with greater than 50% support from 100 bootstrap replicates is indicated at major node points. The distances indicated by black horizontal lines correspond to genetic distances, with the scale bar representing nucleotide substitutions/site.
