  1. *B. mallei isolates from several horses isolated during the glanders outbreak in UAE 2004.
  2. List of strains used to evaluate the reliability of ICMS-based discrimination of B. mallei and B. pseudomallei using a dedicated set of reference strains. Column ‘Score’ designates the score value of the top-ranking hit in the dedicated database, which in all cases represented the same species as the tested sample. (T, typestrain).
