  1. cPatristic distance of the Maximum Likelihood (ML) tree and the genetic distance without reference to a tree were generated as described in the Methods. Distances (patristic and genetic) were averaged across taxa to produce a value for each node. CPXVs belonging to the same cluster have distance values less than TATV-CMLV threshold, while CPXVs belonging to different cluster have distance values equal or more than the TATV-CMLV threshold. TATV-CMLV patristic distance threshold is 0.013 while its genetic distance threshold is also 0.013.
