  1. † Strain pairs 1106a & 1106b, and 1710a and 1710b were obtained from two patients who each relapsed (from a persistent focus) 3 years after the primary episode of melioidosis. 'a' denotes primary isolate and 'b' denotes relapse isolate.
  2. - Island absent; + Island present; +/- Island partially present (CDSs missing); -* Island absent at the site of insertion but similar region present elsewhere in the genome; +* Island present and contains extra sequence; Alt Alternative island present at this site (no sequence similarity)
