Bacteria from the genus Burkholderia are widespread in nature, with strains being isolated from rhizosphere, aquatic environments, man-made environments and in association with hosts causing disease or beneficial interactions. One common feature across the genus is the ability to produce an exopolysaccharide (EPS) termed cepacian. This ability is confirmed by the presence of the bce biosynthetic genes in all Burkholderia sequenced genomes with the exception for Burkholderia mallei (Ferreira et… CONTINUE READING
