Burkholderia is an important bacterial genus with a complex taxonomy that contains species of both ecological and pathogenic importance, including nine closely related species collectively termed the Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC). Unfortunately, 16S rRNA gene analysis has proven to be not sensitive enough to discriminate between species of the BCC. Alternative species identification strategies such as recA-based PCR followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, although… CONTINUE READING
