Query: NC_006349:2311817 Burkholderia mallei ATCC 23344 chromosome 2, complete sequence

Lineage: Burkholderia mallei; Burkholderia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This type strain came from a Chinese patient in Burma who had glanders in 1944. Causes glanders in horses. This organism is rarely associated with human infection, and is more commonly seen in domesticated animals such as horses, donkeys, and mules where it causes glanders, a disease first described by Aristotle. The pathogen is host-adapted and is not found in the environment outside of its host. Rapid-onset pneumonia, bacteremia (spread of the organism through the blood), pustules, and death are common outcomes during infection. No vaccine exists for this potentially dangerous organism.

Subject: NC_010557:207846 Burkholderia ambifaria MC40-6 chromosome 3, complete sequence

Lineage: Burkholderia ambifaria; Burkholderia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from a cystic fibrosis patient. These bacteria present great versatility to adapt to diverse environments, and are capable of degrading pollutants in water and soil, and fixing atmospheric nitrogen. This species include strains isolated from cystic fibrosis patients as well as strains with potential use in biocontrol.
