Abstract

Abstract Dengue virus sequences used in this study were obtained from two Iranian patients who were both with a history of traveling to Malaysia. The maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree demonstrated that two sequences were grouped into dengue virus 1. Specifically, strains Iran-DF1 and Iran-DF2 clustered in genotype I and III, respectively.
