Figure. Bayesian phylogenetic tree based on complete envelope protein coding gene of dengue virus 1 (DENV-1) serotypeThe tree was constructed by using the Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling method and BEAST software (http://beast.bio.ed.ac.uk)The general time reversible model of sequence evolution with gamma-distributed rate variation among sites and a proportion of invariable sites and a relaxed (uncorrelated log-normal) molecular clock model were usedBayesian posterior probabilities and percentages of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered in the bootstrap test (1,000 replicates) obtained by using a maximum-likelihood analysis are shown at the branchesStrains are denoted by GenBank accession number, name, year of isolation, and country of originThe strain BNI-5201 from this study is highlightedScale bar indicates mean number of nucleotide substitutions per site.
