Figure 2. Unrooted neighbor-joining tree based on 23 variable number tandem repeat loci demonstrating the genetic relationship of the camel strain (THSK2) to other existing strains of Burkholderia mallei. The most closely related B. mallei strain to THSK2 is Dubai 7, which was isolated from a horse in the United Arab Emirates in 2004. Scale bar represents 0.1 changes.
