Maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree of complete genome sequences. Phylogenetic tree was obtained with PHYML using GTR+G+I for the new sequence and 29 complete genomes (coding region) representative of all 6 HCV genotypes. Genotype and subtype labels (in bold) are next to accession numbers. The sequence obtained in this study is underlined. Bar represents 0.1 substitutions per nucleotide position. Support value of nodes was estimated by bootstrap (1000 replicates using neighbour-joining with the maximum likelihood distance). Only values >75% are shown.
