Lineage: Cupriavidus metallidurans; Cupriavidus; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was first identified in the heavy metal-contaminated sludge of a settling tank in Belgium in the late 1970s. This organism, formerly Ralstonia metallidurans, is capable of growth in the presence of a large number of heavy metals including silver, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, mercury, nickel, lead, thallium, and zinc.

Subject: NC_006348:2372945 Burkholderia mallei ATCC 23344 chromosome 1, 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.
