Evolutionary events of transmission and reassortment for influenza A viruses were traditionally detected by phylogenetic analysis for influenza viruses' eight gene segments. Because the phylogenetic analysis can be complex, we developed genotype profile method which packaged the phylogenetic algorithms to analyze combination patterns of gene segments and integrated epidemiology knowledge. With the method, the analysis of reassortment and transmission becomes a simple and reliable process that… CONTINUE READING
