Maximum likelihood tree based on the complete DNA-A sequences of twenty-three Cotton leaf curl Gezira virus isolates from Burkina Faso (in bold; see Table 2 for isolates name and acronyms), plus additional sequences from African and Asian monopartite and bipartite begomoviruses. Begomovirus acronyms used are Cotton leaf curl Gezira virus (CLCuGV), Hollyhock leaf crumple virus (HoLCrV), Cotton leaf curl Bangalore virus (CLCuBV), Okra yellow vein mosaic virus (OYVMV), Tomato leaf curl Togo virus (ToLCTGV), Tomato leaf curl Ghana virus (ToLCGHV), Tomato leaf curl Nigeria virus (ToLCNGV), South African cassava mosaic virus (SACMV), Tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus (TYLCSV), Tomato leaf curl Sudan virus (ToLCSDV), Tomato yellow leaf curl Mali virus (TYLCMLV), Tomato yellow leaf curl virus-Mild (TYLCV-Mld), Pepper yellow vein Mali virus (PepYVMV), Tomato curly stunt virus (ToCSV), Tobacco leaf curl Zimbabwe virus (TbLCZV), Tomato leaf curl Mali virus (ToLCMV), Okra yellow crinkle virus (OYCrV) and Malvastrum leaf curl virus (MaLCV). For the complete description of isolate descriptors refer to Fauquet et al. (2008). Four genetic groups (G1 to G4) have been defined on the presence or absence of recombination events (Figure 4), and are represented here.
