Bayesian phylogeny of MERS-CoV full genomes, including the first available sequence linked to the South Korean MERS-CoV outbreak.

Analysis was done using MrBayes v3.1. Black dots are shown at all nodes with posterior probability > 0.9.

Red box: Sequence obtained from a human case linked to the Korean outbreak sampled on 27-May-2015 in China.

Grey box: Third german case (March 2015).

The sequence from the Chinese/Korean case was sequenced by Lu et al (China CDC, National Institute for Viral Disease Control and Prevention) and is publicly available via GenBank.

The preliminary sequence from the third german case can be downloaded here.
