Phylogenetic analysis of LASV from patient G-1442. A ca. 800 bp fragment of the GPC gene was sequenced and aligned to 73 other sequences available in the NCBI database. A Neighbor-joining tree using LASV Pinneo as an outgroup was created with 1,000 replicates of bootstrap and clades from different countries are displayed as cartoons. Recent LASV isolates from the Kenema area are marked in blue. The scale bar indicates 3% nucleotide divergence.
