Figure. eBURST analysis showing the evolutionary relationship of sequence type (ST) 707 to Burkholderia pseudomallei, B. mallei, and B. thailandensis strains on the multilocus sequence typing database. Each circle and square (the latter indicate subfounders) represents an ST, with size being proportional to the number of isolations of that particular ST. The primary founder is ST48 (triangle). The lines directly linking STs represent strains that differ at a single locus in their allelic profile.
