Burkholderia thailandensis sp. nov., a Burkholderia pseudomallei-like species

Int J Syst Bacteriol. 1998 Jan;48 Pt 1:317-20. doi: 10.1099/00207713-48-1-317.


The presence of a Burkholderia pseudomallei-like species based upon the significant genotypic and phenotypic dissimilarities exhibited between these organisms and true B. pseudomallei strains has been reported previously. In this study, a comprehensive 16S rDNA-based phylogenetic analysis further supports the existence of this newly described Burkholderia species for which the name Burkholderia thailandensis sp. nov. is proposed.
