Abstract

The bacterial infection known as melioidosis occurs sporadically throughout its endemic zone and only rarely manifests in case clusters or outbreaks. When these occur, the unusual concentration of cases presents an opportunity to advance understanding of the human, bacterial and environmental factors that result in disease. We consider how a series of expeditionary investigations have shaped our laboratory response to global melioidosis events over a period of two decades, and have enabled development of a bioreconnaissance concept for emerging infectious diseases.

Subject Areas
