  • The nine beneficial mutations used in this study affect two different viral proteins: the DNA-binding protein J and the major coat protein F. Positions are based on the published genome sequence of ID11 (GenBank accession no. AY751298). Nuc, nucleotide; ΔNuc, nucleotide change; Aa, amino acid; ΔAa, amino acid change.
