Phylogenetic analysis of human adenovirus 7 genome type d (HAdV-B7d), Oregon, USA, 2014. Genomic sequences were aligned by using ClustalW implemented in BioEdit version 7.2.5 and the neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree constructed by using MEGA7 software (23,24). Numbers at selected nodes indicate level of support using 1,000 bootstrap replicates. Sequences are identifoed by GenBank accession number, geographic location, year of sample collection, and virus genome type identified. Boldface indica

Figure 4. Phylogenetic analysis of human adenovirus 7 genome type d (HAdV-B7d), Oregon, USA, 2014. Genomic sequences were aligned by using ClustalW implemented in BioEdit version 7.2.5 and the neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree constructed by using MEGA7 software (23,24). Numbers at selected nodes indicate level of support using 1,000 bootstrap replicates. Sequences are identifoed by GenBank accession number, geographic location, year of sample collection, and virus genome type identified. Boldface indicates 7 identical genomic sequences identified during this study; sequences are from HAdV-B7 isolates derived from 7 different cases spanning the outbreak period. Scale bar indicates estimated number of nucleotide substitutions per site.
