Figure 1

Comparison of multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and 4-locus multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA-4) dendrograms for 65 Burkholderia pseudomallei isolates. MLST sequence type (ST) is shown for each isolate, with the corresponding isolate number listed for the MLVA-4 profile and shown by the colored lines. The red asterisks indicate 6 isolates that represent diversity of MLVA-4; these isolates were used to calibrate the dendrogram in Figure 3.
