Figure 1. Phylogenetic tree of VEE complex viruses showing close relationship between a virus from the amniotic liquid of a pregnant woman in French Guiana (bold) and a reference Tonate virus sequence. Tree was generated from concatenated sequences (891 bp) using a neighbor-joining algorithm. GenBank accession numbers and VEE complex subtypes are provided for reference sequences. Scale bar represents 5% nucleotide sequence divergence. VEE, Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis.
