A metagenomic viral discovery approach identifies potential zoonotic and novel mammalian viruses in Neoromicia bats within South Africa
A) Overview of the confirmed picornavirus contig alignment positions in reference to a typical picornavirus genome. The dark grey contig (1077bp) of the P1/P2 region was used to construct a Bayesian phylogeny. B) The maximum clade credibility tree constructed in BEAST v1.8 used the GTR plus invariant sites and gamma distribution substitution model. The genera are indicated on the right side of the sequence names (with GenBank accession numbers); the Neoromicia picornavirus from this study is indicated with a black circle. Posterior probability values of less than 50% were omitted.
