Figure 5

Sammon representation of the spectrum-based distance relations of B. mallei and B. pseudomallei.Diagrams A and B were calculated from qualitative or quantitative distance matrices derived from the mass alignment of the spectra, respectively. Members of the dedicated reference spectrum set for the discrimination of B. mallei and B. pseudomallei are underlined. Sammon representations allow visualising distance matrices in a two-dimensional plot with minimized distortion.
