Phylogenetic Grouping and Levels of Genetic Structuration in SARS-Cov-2, Using FIGTREE V1.4.4 Software

Eduarda Doralice Alves Braz Da Silva, Dallynne Barbara Ramos Venancio, Pierre Teodosio Felix* and Robson da Silva Ramos

In this work, 38 complete genomes of SARS-CoV-2 were used, from five Central American countries (Belize, Guatemala, Cuba, Jamaica and Puerto Rico) with 04, 10, 2, 8 and 14 haplotypes, respectively, with an extension of up to 29,885 bp. All sequences were publicly available on the National Biotechnology Information Centre (NCBI) platform and were previously aligned with the MEGA X software, where all gaps and ambiguous sites were extracted for the construction of the phylogenetic tree. Only 79 sites remained preserved and the high number of polymorphisms helped to establish a clear pattern of non-genetic structuring, based on the time of divergence between the groups, visualized with the software FIGTREE V. 1.4.4.
