Use Of Whole-Genome Sequencing To Link Burkholderia Pseudomallei From Air Sampling To Mediastinal Melioidosis, Australia
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4622230
Description:The frequency with which melioidosis results from inhalation rather than percutaneous inoculation or ingestion is unknown. We recovered Burkholderia pseudomallei from air samples at the residence of a patient with presumptive inhalational melioidosis and used whole-genome sequencing to link the environmental bacteria to B. pseudomallei recovered from the patient.
