Average dN/dS across H7 avian influenza HA1 for lineages corresponding to different viral pathogenicities
Virus pathogenicity Mean dN/dS Lower 90% HPD limit for dN/dS Upper 90% HPD limit for dN/dS
HP 0.146 0.092 0.207
LP 0.115 0.082 0.150

Stochastic mutational mapping was used to calculate dN/dS along lineages corresponding to viruses of high pathogenicity (HP) and low pathogenicity (LP) for 1000 MCMC tree samples, in an analogous manner to that described for comparisons by background NA subtype.
