   Size Accession no. & Genome Center  
K96243 Isolated in 1996 in Khon Kaen, Thailand from a 34 year old female diabetic patient with a clinical history of short incubation, septicemic infection, and rapid progression to death. Chr1: 4.07 Mb; Chr2: 3.17 Mb BX571965 and BX571966 Sanger Institute Dr. S. Songsivilai*
1710b Isolated in 1999 in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand from blood collected from a 55 year old male patient with known primary melioidosis in 1996. This second episode represented relapse with the same strain. The patient died. Chr1: 4.13 Mb; Chr2: 3.18 Mb CP000124 and CP000125 JCVI Dr. S. Peacock
1106a Isolated in 1993 in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand from pus aspirated from liver abscess from a 23-year old female rice farmer. The patient survived. Chr1: 3.99 Mb; Chr2: 3.10 Mb CP000572 and CP000573 JCVI Dr. S. Peacock
MSHR668 Isolated in 1995 in Darwin, Australia from the blood of a 53 year old male patient with severe melioidosis encephalomyelitis. The patient survived. Chr1: 3.91 Mb; Chr2: 3.13 Mb CP000570 and CP000571 JCVI Dr. B. Currie
MSHR305 Isolated in 1994 from an autopsy sample from the brain of a fatal melioidosis encephalomyelitis case at the Royal Darwin Hospital, Northern Territory, Australia. Neurological melioidosis is rare, occurring only in approximately 5% of diagnosed cases. 36 contigs 7,453,647 nt AAYX00000000 JGI Dr. B. Currie
