Burkholderia

Cells of Burkholderia cepacia, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Belongs within: Burkholderiales.

Burkholderia is a genus of rod-shaped, usually motile, Gram-negative bacteria, members of which are obligately aerobic and able to utilise poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate for growth. Species of this genus may be facultative pathogens of plants or animals (including humans), or they may be environmentally significant soil bacteria.
