Abstract

Abstract.

Multilocus sequence typing of seven isolates of from India showed considerable diversity, with six different sequence types. Possible dissemination of melioidosis by historical trading routes is supported by links to strains from Southeast Asia, China, and Africa and the presence of the allele of the gene.
