To characterize the genetic diversity of influenza B viruses isolated during one influenza season, the antigenic and genetic relationships among 20 strains of influenza B virus isolated in February and March 2001 at one pediatric clinic in Yamagata City, Japan, were investigated. The HA gene and seven other gene segments were phylogenetically divided into three distinct sublineages (Harbin/7/94‐, Tokyo/6/98‐, and Shiga/T30/98‐related lineage) of the Yamagata/16/88‐like lineage. The NS genes of… 
Genetic Lineage and Reassortment of Influenza C Viruses Circulating between 1947 and 2014
TLDR
It is found that influenza C viruses are circulating worldwide while undergoing reassortment as well as selection by herd immunity, resulting in an increased ability to prevail in humans.
Circulating pattern and genomic characteristics of influenza B viruses in Taiwan from 2003 to 2014.
The Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Dynamics of Influenza B Virus in Two Italian Regions during 2010–2015: The Experience of Sicily and Liguria
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships and genetic diversity of the hemagglutinin gene sequences of 197 influenza B strains circulating in both Southern and Northern Italy between 2010 and 2015 are reconstructed to provide further evidence to support the adoption of quadrivalent influenza vaccines in Italy.
Detection and Characterization of New Influenza B Virus Variants in 2002
TLDR
The results support the notion that influenza B viruses continued to evolve through antigenic drift and shift.
Genetic characterisation of influenza B viruses detected in Singapore, 2004 to 2009
TLDR
The presence of both lineages co-circulating post 2000, suggests that a trivalent vaccine is not enough to confer immunity to the general public, strongly endorsing the inclusion of both linesages in the vaccine.
Reappearance of influenza B/Victoria/2/87-lineage viruses: epidemic activity, genetic diversity and vaccination efficacy in the Finnish Defence Forces
TLDR
Analysis of the cross-reactive antibodies induced in 1988 suggests that the basis of the protection was probably established during the childhood of the conscripts, and supports the hypothesis that circumstances in these settings may especially favour the emergence of diversity by reassortment.
Phylogenetic and Evolutionary History of Influenza B Viruses, which Caused a Large Epidemic in 2011–2012, Taiwan
TLDR
The results suggest that in addition to the emergence of new variants with mutations or reassortments, other factors, including the interference of multi-types or lineages of influenza viruses and the accumulation of susceptible hosts, can also affect the scale and time of an influenza B epidemic.
Exploration of the emergence of the Victoria lineage of influenza B virus
TLDR
P phylogenetic analysis, the history of China, and the epidemiology of influenza B virus indicated that the Victoria lineage possibly emerged in China in the 1970s through gradual evolution from a minor lineage.
Differing Epidemiological Dynamics of Influenza B Virus Lineages in Guangzhou, Southern China, 2009-2010
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the hemagglutinin and neuraminidase sequences of influenza B viruses isolated in Guangzhou during 2009 to 2010 and compared the demographic and clinical features of infected patients reveals the complex epidemiological dynamics of different influenza B lineages within a single geographic locality and has implications for vaccination policy in southern China.
The Evolutionary Dynamics of Human Influenza B Virus
TLDR
A model is proposed in which evolutionary changes within and between the antigenically distinct ‘Yam88’ and ‘Vic87’ lineages of influenza B virus are the result of changes in herd immunity, with reassortment continuously generating novel genetic variation.

Antigenic and genetic analyses of influenza B viruses\\ isolated in Lusaka, Zambia in 1999
TLDR
Antigenic analysis with chicken antiviral sera and phylogenetic analyses suggested that the Zambian viruses are closely related to the recently circulating reassortants represented by B/Shiga/T30/98 and B/Yamanashi/166/98 which acquired the genes coding for three polymerase proteins, HA, nucleoprotein, and matrix protein from a B-Yamagata/16/88-like parent.
Molecular characterization of influenza B viruses circulating in northern Italy during the 2001–2002 epidemic season
TLDR
The low age (<14 years) of individuals infected with B/Hong Kong/330/01‐like viruses is likely to reflect the greater susceptibility of the youngest cohort, due to lack of previous exposure to Victoria‐lineage viruses, and is consistent with the conclusion that vaccination with a B/Sichuan/379/99‐like virus would give poor protection against infection with B/(Hong Kong)330/ 01‐like (Victoria‐lineages) viruses.
Frequent occurrence of genetic reassortment between influenza C virus strains in nature.
TLDR
Comparison of total or partial nucleotide sequences of the seven RNA segments of C/Yamagata/5/92 with those of 11 previous isolates suggested that the 1992 strain is a reassortant which inherited HE, P3, NP and M genes from a C/Mississippi/80-like virus and PB2, PB1 and NS genes fromA C/pig/Beijing/115/81- like virus.
Evolutionary pattern of the hemagglutinin gene of influenza B viruses isolated in Japan: cocirculating lineages in the same epidemic season
TLDR
An analysis of nucleotide and amino acid substitutions of the hemagglutinin genes of influenza B viruses revealed that new and some old variants could cocirculate in the same epidemic.
Reassortment and Insertion-Deletion Are Strategies for the Evolution of Influenza B Viruses in Nature
TLDR
Reassortment plays a role in the evolution of influenza B viruses and may necessitate a change in the methods used to assess and identify new influenza viruses.
Evolutionary characteristics of influenza B virus since its first isolation in 1940: dynamic circulation of deletion and insertion mechanism
TLDR
Antigenic and phylogenetic analyses revealed that B/Victoria/2/87-like variants appeared again in Japan in 1997 after a nine-year absence, and it was evident that amino acid substitutions accompanying nucleotide insertions were highly conserved.
Antigenic and Genetic Characterization of Influenza C Viruses Which Caused Two Outbreaks in Yamagata City, Japan, in 1996 and 1998
TLDR
Observations suggest strongly that during the survey period of 3 years, two outbreaks of influenza C occurred in Yamagata City, both of which were caused by a reassortant virus having the genome composition described above.
Frequent Reassortment among Influenza C Viruses
TLDR
Observation that 44 viruses among the 45 strains isolated in surveillance work were reassortant viruses that have various genome compositions distinguishable from those of the reference strains of the each lineage suggests that the reassortment between two different influenza C virus strains occurs frequently in nature and the genome composition of influenza C viruses may influence their ability to spread in humans.
Cocirculation of two distinct groups of influenza C virus in Yamagata City, Japan.
TLDR
Two lineages of influenza C virus, markedly different from each other in both antigenic and genetic structures, were simultaneously present in Yamagata City during 1988-1990 and that viruses belonging to each of the two lineages may also be prevalent in other areas of Japan and even in other countries.
