We have studied human and animal isolates of B. pseudomallei 
received from Thailand and Australia. The smell and colony 
morphology are unique. We have, in 30 years, only received one 
strain from Scandinavia (isolated in Oslo in a patient from 
South-East Asia).

You should start checking in testbooks. There are many good 
papers on subject. The only references I have at hand at home 
are:

Anyone have done any studies on the Tropical Soil Disease...(caused by 
Burkholderia pseudomallei)??

anyone know the possible cures or symptoms of this diseaese??

thanks
