The following tables and figures are supplementary information associated with the publication by Liu, et al, Virology. This manuscript was the result of a collaboration between St Jude Children's Research Hospital (World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Studies on the Ecology of Influenza in Animals and Birds), Jiangxi Medical College, and the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science. The study follows the dynamics of influenza within a mixed live poultry market in South Central China over a 16-month period. The information contained in the supplementary material includes the phylogenetic analyses of viruses isolated throughout the study.

Appendix 2

Phylogenetic trees produced from the partial nucleotide sequences of the M, NS, NP, PA, PB1, and PB2 genes. Multiple sequence alignments were made by using CLUSTAL W , and phylogenetic trees were generated by using the neighbor-joining algorithm in the PHYLIP version 3.57C software package. The following regions of the gene segments were used for phylogenetic analysis: PB2, nucleotide positions 65 to 603; PB1, 45 to 634; PA, 47 to 525; NP, 41 to 631; M, 40 to 668; and NS, 101 to 621. All trees are rooted to A/Quail/Nanchang/12-340/2000 except that for the NS gene which is rooted to A/equine/Prague/1/56. The open brackets at the right of the trees indicate the phylogenetic groups used in our analysis (see text for more detail). (pdf) or (ppt)
