Quasispecies diversity within the NS5A protein based on the number of strains. A) The end-of-treatment responders. B) The non-responders. C) The sustained virological responders. Vertical bars represent viral variants. Inside the bars are the numbers of identical clones and, consequently, the number of identical quasispecies. The predominant quasispecies identified from the samples of each patient are identified by specific colors. The percentages of different quasispecies in ETR, NR and SVR samples are presented above the bars. The time of sample collection are indicated below the bars.
