[…] analysis was conducted using Geneious, with a Jukes-Cantor genetic distance model and the neighbor-joining method. Identity plots comparing a virus with a panel of other viruses were generated using T-RECs (). This approach is scalable to an unlimited number of comparator strains, but random mutations can cause a deviation from 100% similarity that may complicate interpretation. Bootscan analysis […]
