  • a The most stringent constraint involved all 5 MLV sequences from the second time point, while each of the 5-s time point sequences was also constrained individually to cluster with the CFS type 1 sequence from the first time point. The trees were compared using pairwise Shimodaira-Hasegawa (SH) tests, the approximately unbiased (AU) test, and expected likelihood weights. All of the constrained trees were significantly worse than the maximum likelihood tree. NA, not applicable.
