Hemagglutinin gene of the recent influenza A(H3N2) virus detected in Mongolia
The influenza virus detection started from 50th week of 2014 with A (H3N2) subtypes in Mongolia (A/Ulaanbaatar/4535/2014). We have sequenced HA gene of the newly detected A(H3N2) virus and the phylogenetic analyses has shown that A(H3N2) virus within clade 3C.3 (Picture 1).

Hemagglutinin gene of the recent influenza B virus detected in Mongolia
The first influenza B viruses in Mongolia in 2014 were detected in the 3rd week of 2014. We have sequenced HA gene of the newly detected virus and the phylogenetic analyses has shown that the B virus belonging to Victoria Lineage, 1A clade (Picture 1).

Number: EPI505124) which detected in the fourth week of 2014 compared with the vaccine strain for the 2013-14 season and strains representing HA clades (the designation of the Mongolian strains are blue, of the vaccine strain is red and of the strains representing HA genetic clades are green)
