B. pseudomallei multilocus sequence typing diversity of isolates from Australia, Papua New Guinea, and New Caledonia (red), and the rest of the world (black). Allelic diversity at each locus is greater for the 811 isolates from Australia, Papua New Guinea, and New Caledonia than the 801 isolates from the rest of the world, suggesting an ancestral Australasian population. Conversely, the number of sequence types (STs) found in the rest of the world is greater than the number found in Australasia, suggesting lower levels of recombination in Australasia.
