  1. dN and dS rates were estimated by using sequences obtained from databases together with Colombian ones (worldwide isolates) and just with those obtained in the Colombian population. n: number of isolates. pv12: region A, nucleotides 1-546 and region B, nucleotides 547-1,095. pv38: region A, nucleotides 1-459 and region B, nucleotides 460-1,065. se: standard error. No statistically significant differences were found.
